"Japan Through Diplomats' Eyes"

("Hanko-tachi: Interacting Figures and Colors" by Israel Strolov. Image borrowed from Maru Building Event News.)

An exhibition of photographs taken by foreign diplomats and spouses linked to Japan will open Monday in Tokyo, showcasing a variety of work imbued with humor, wit and curiosity about the country.

About 70 works by 54 diplomats and spouses, representing 37 countries and the European Commission, were selected from about 500 submissions that freely interpreted the theme "Interacting Japan" for the annual show, known as "Japan through Diplomats’ Eyes."

The show will run from Monday through Oct 29 in the corridor gallery on the third floor of the Marunouchi Building in Tokyo. It will run in Nagoya from Nov 21 to 27 at the Central Park shopping mall, and in Osaka from Jan 8 to 12 at the International House, Osaka.
