This event has ended.

“The Makioka Sisters”, written by Junichiro Tanizaki (1886-1965), is a tale of women who love antique kimono. The glamorous actresses of stage and film often appear in kimono, but how did Tanizaki really imagine the kimono of these sisters? This exhibition presents replicas of the kimono worn by these characters based on photos of the family who stood as a model for his literary work. The show features kimono, illustrations, photographs and other related documents from Tanizaki’s oeuvre.
