A pop-up exhibition combining Japanese prints and items from UCL's Special Collections to mark the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Choshu Five.

Five young noble men from the Choshu Clan left Japan during the turbulent times of the 1860s and came to study at UCL. On their return to Japan they went on to form the core of a new government. Included amongst them was Ito Hirobumi, the first Prime Minister of modern day Japan, and father of the Japanese Constitution.

Pop-in between 1-5pm to find out. Free, no booking required.

This event is generously supported by the Jardine Matheson Group.
