During the Edo period (1603-1868), many adaptations of the tale were published, including not only summary books abridging “The Tale of Genji,” but also parody books adapted from the tale, and nishiki-e prints depicting scenes and characters in a modern style. The Genji pattern, a design based on a scene from the tale, was incorporated into furnishings and other items, and was favored as an elegant pattern.
In this exhibition, we introduce the development of “The Tale of Genji” in the Edo and Meiji periods.

  • Sasabe Sakura Reference Room

Do you know? The Secret of Cherry Blossoms

Period: Jul. 10 (Wed.) - Aug. 26 (Mon.), Sep. 11 (Wed.) - Nov. 18 (Mon.), 2024
Sasabe Shintaro (1887-1978) found the charm of cherry blossoms in parts other than their flowers, such as treetops and sprouts. In this exhibition, we follow in Mr. Sasabe's footsteps and focus on the parts of cherry trees other than their flowers, drawing on books, tools, autographs, and photographs to explore the "secrets" of cherry trees that may seem familiar but are surprisingly unknown to us. Easy-to-understand explanations will also be posted. Please come with your family!

I’m deeply interested in the works of art depicting the four seasons and the items that make me feel the history.


Look! Various exhibitions are held as well as those related to sake and sakura!!
