The Nippon Club WEB Gallery holds the exhibition "TANSU" from June 24 to August 4 as the 11th special exhibition, introducing a Japanese chest of drawers representing Japan's furniture.
Japanese Chest of drawers has a rich regional color and a rich sense of humanity, and it is a powerful piece of furniture full of a sense of life created by Japanese people from their daily lives. Born in the Edo period, many elaborate Japanese chests of drawers were made from the Meiji era to the Taisho period and now remain as a heritage of historical and cultural value. In this exhibition, we will introduce about 40 chests of drawers that developed in each region from the Edo period to the Taisho period and a chest of drawers remade from an antique chest drawer in a modern style.
