One year following the pandemic, tourism in Japan is nearly back at its peak. Through vintage tourism posters, this exhibition offers a glimpse into a past that resonates with the present.

The posters encapsulate the allure of a nation poised to share its treasures with the world. Evocative in their design, they embody the spirit of exploration, and beckon their viewers to immerse themselves in the intricacies of each site's unique history and identity.

The exhibition showcases posters from the late 1930s to the late 1960s, drawn from private collections mainly in the UK. Vintage posters are on loan from AntikBar Gallery. The posters are accompanied by signature objects from the Embassy collection that tell a story about the uniqueness of each Japanese region's tradition, culture, and tourism sites.
