Kenichi Hayashi: Observation Stations of Mt Fuji in 1941

Hanzomon's JCII Photo Salon hosts this fascinating display of Mt Fuji photos by essayist Kenichi Hayashi, taken during his assignments for the wartime Cabinet Information Bureau, Imperial Japan's internal propaganda organ. Having escaped both the war and the claws of government censors, the shots offer an inside look at the lonely and demanding work of the scientists stationed on the slopes of Fuji.
