We have renewed the display for the UBRJ booth at the Hokkaido University Museum (2nd floor).
The main contents by Saito Masayoshi (a photographer based in Wakkanai, Hokkaido) have been changed to include photographs from his recent visit to the Ogasawara Islands. Images of the deep blue ocean and exotic birds convey a sense of summer.
There are also new panels about Akihiro Iwashita's (Slavic-Eurasian Research Center) Border Tourism visits to the Sino-Russian border and Nemuro City in the northeast of Hokkaido.
The 'small corner' section of the booth also has a new display. Titled 'Diplomats for Beauty: the Bolshoi Ballet', Saito Keiko has put up posters introducing her research on the history of ballet exchange with Russia. Next year marks the 60th anniversary of the Bolshoi Ballet's first visit to Japan.
The Hokkaido University Museum is open everyday (except Mondays) from 10 am to 5 pm (from June to October the museum is open until 9 pm on Fridays). Please feel free to come and have a look!
