Both in Japan and abroad, “samurai” is often used as a keyword to evoke images of Japan. However, the associations with this word may vary, depending on the person. To reconsider images of the samurai, this exhibition reviews the life and work of the samurai “warrior” class in Japan’s Edo Period (1600-1868), the origin point for contemporary impressions of the samurai.
