With 'Naturalists in the Edo era', the Seikado Bunko museum out in the residential wilds of Setagaya explores how Edo-era Japanese scientists came into contact with European natural history research in the mid-18th century and how these new influences were combined with and differed from the ancient East Asian tradition of herbalism. See materials like painter and printmaker Shiba Kokan's 1792 world map, one of the first such scientific charts produced on these shores, and learn how these pioneering researchers laid the basis for modern natural science in Japan.
