Ends in 10 days

In this exhibit, we focus on Japanese children’s literature that Chihiro illustrated, examining an aspect of Chihiro’s work that differs from her picture books while also shedding new light on the history of postwar Japanese children’s literature. Highlighting the period that Chihiro was most active in her career, we present works based on Japan’s unique prewar sentiments and social issues, works based on the memories of war that were rapidly fading at the time, and works depicting the loss of hometown nature.
