This spring, Japan welcomes a new emperor when Crown Prince Naruhito becomes the 126th sovereign in the traditional lineage and the fifth sovereign to rule as a constitutional monarch in the modern age. “Royal Celebrations: Japanese Prints and Postcards” presents prints, postcards, and illustrated books depicting important events in the Japanese imperial family from 1868 to the present, including enthronement ceremonies—the equivalent of coronations—as well as royal weddings, anniversaries, births, and state visits. Join exhibition curator Sarah Thompson for a look at this new exhibition.
