Event Details

The Black Ship Scroll marks a time in history when Japan “opened” its doors to the outside world after more than two centuries of living in seclusion.  The collection contains Japanese depictions of Commodore Perry and his crew members in Shimoda, Japan in 1854.  It is an eyewitness account by an anonymous Japanese artist of the day-to-day activities the American sailors had with the people of Shimoda, at work and at play.  Join us for a lively discussion on the early interactions between the US and Japan, as told through the images from the Black Ship Scroll.


Speakers include:

·         Melissa Rinne, Associate Curator of Japanese Art at the Asian Art Museum

·         Abbot Daiei Matsui from the Ryosenji Treasure Museum in Shimoda, Japan

 

Moderator:

·         Andrew Neuman, President of the Japan Society of Northern California
