Celebrating Spring: The Grace of the Tokugawa Shoguns

This exhibition of various mid- to late-era Edo artifacts looks at how the Tokugawa clan celebrated the arrival of spring. Visitors can enjoy a variety of works including “Toshogu Miei,” a portrait of the first Tokugawa shogun, Ieyasu, which was inherited by the Tokugawa head family. Traditional hina dolls and accessories belonging to Tensho-in and Princess Kazu will also be on display in addition to examples of delicate silverwork, illustrated song cards, kimono, embroidery and more. From chickens to cherry blossoms you can discover the motifs and themes of spring as you take a step back in time.
