Bamboo can be found all across Japan and is often thought to represent the ideal way for a human to conduct their life because of their nodes and upright stance. Bamboo is also regarded as a symbol of nobility and prosperity. Their hard, yet supple stems have been used as materials in daily use items and handicrafts, from hoops to bound wooden tubs and casks.

Through various works of art related to bamboo, this exhibition introduces the culture of bamboo that has become familiar in the daily life of Japanese people.
