The Modern City: Memories of Ginza – 50 Years of Photography by Koji Morooka

Starting out in 1930, photographer Koji Morooka spent 50 years shooting downtown Tokyo, witnessing the city’s transformation from the prewar years all the way up to the late Showa period. This display draws on his entire body of work, showcasing photos of the Ginza area along with accompanying materials to draw a fascinating story of changing cultures and trends. Should make for a nice opportunity to look back at the expressions and lives of Tokyoites over the years. Also, Japanese-speakers might want to attend the related talk held on November 5 (¥1,000, advance reservations required). See the Edo-Tokyo Museum’s website for full details.
