Tracing the influence of international exchange on Japan’s history and culture through the written word

It can be argued that Japan’s long history has been cultivated in each era by the country’s various interactions with foreign lands. Japan has been greatly influenced by mainland Asia since ancient times, but from the Edo period onwards, the western world has also altered the course of its culture and history. The growth and advancement in every field of society owes a debt to knowledge gained from documents brought from overseas. This exhibition traces the varied forms of international exchange which formed the basis of Japanese history and culture through written materials.
