and has been maintaining its tradition with the coming of the new age.
Here GTK'd like to introduce the monthly art highlights, museums, creators etc.

The Exhibition of the Sengoku Period – A Century of Dreams

The Sengoku period in Japan for approximately 100 years from the mid 15th century is thought to have been disorganized and disturbed due to successive wars. In recent years, however, it is considered to have been the era that brought cultural and economic prosperity nationwide.
During the period, powerful Daimyo warriors such as Oda Nobunaga, Takeda Shingen strived to manage and strengthen their own countries while fighting. As a result, Kyoto’s matured culture spread throughout nation and eventually it developed with regional culture.
In this exhibition, historical materials describing wars and warriors at that time as well as region produced arts and crafts will be displayed. This is a good opportunity to get acquainted with the remarkable period and powerful people of Japan.
