Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum "The Original Shadow of Japan"
Taro Okamoto was the one who kept asking "What is Japan?"
The journey between Jomon-Tohoku-Okinawa and Megurutaro was a journey to discover the original Japan, the forgotten Japan, that is, the true Japan. This exhibition is a relive of this journey based on photographs taken by Taro himself. It is an original song by jazz bassist Takashi Sugawa that flows into a solemn space. Please take a look at the "thick and rich Japanese" captured by Taro Okamoto's eyes.
