Takashi Hamaguchi: Horror of Narita Airport

Art, Photography Free

Counted among postwar Japan's most influential photojournalists, Takashi Hamaguchi made his name during the turbulent '60s and early '70s, documenting the student movement, the 1964 Niigata earthquake and other momentous events of the era. This exhibit at Roppongi's Zen Foto highlights his photos of the so-called Sanrizuka struggle, a 12-year effort that protested the construction of Narita Airport. Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about the history of a place you'll probably have passed through countless times without even wondering why there's an ID check at the entrance.
