At the virtual reception, Dr. Yoshie Itani gave a lecture entitled "Brilliant sparkle of Modern Japanese Export Porcelain" and looked back at this span of development of Old Noritake, from those early post-Meiji periods works to the Art Deco. In addition, as entertainment, we welcomed Japanese music player Ms. Kaho Aso, who talked about the charm of small drums through stories about the musical instruments of small drums used in Noh and Kabuki, and stories about musical accompaniment.


Now you can watch the recording on YouTube, but sorry that it is conducted in Japanese without English subtitles.
