This event has ended.
The Ainu are the indigenous people of northern Japan (Hokkaido and formerly northeastern Honshu) and Sakhalin, the Kuril Islands, and formerly the Kamchatka Peninsula. They have long held their own rich and distinct culture but saw themselves marginalized under shogunate rule during the Edo period. Despite this, their culture continues and this exhibition showcases their traditional handicraft.
