“…This Exhibition traces histories of Hawaii from the pre-modern to the modern period from various historical perspectives: from the experiences of migration and war to images of paradise dream islands as well as the perspective of the Kingdom itself and that of native Hawaiians.” https://www.rekihaku.ac.jp/exhibitions/project/old/191029/index.html (Japanese)
This is from the team of curators on the National Museum of Japanese History website describing their latest exhibit, Hawaii: 150 Year of Japanese Migration and Histories of Dream Islands.
Beginning on October 29 and running through December 26, 2019, the largest exhibit to focus on Hawaii’s Japanese immigrants will introduce their rich history and multi-faceted lives to museum visitors. It was over a year and a half ago that Dr. Kosuke Harayama, Chief Curator, requested the UHM Library’s participation to showcase historical documents and photos about Japanese immigrants in Hawaii. He enthusiastically discussed the Museum's hope to educate people about Hawaii’s rich connection and history with Japan, which is in contrast with the Japanese image of Hawaii as a tourist playground. Monica Ghosh, Interim University Librarian, recognized the tremendous value, locally and internationally, of the National Museum’s request and 50 rare items from the UHM Library’s Hawaiian, Archives, and Asia collections will be exhibited in Japan for the first time. Other major participants include the Hoover Institute of Stanford University, the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Museum, Hawaii Times Photo Archives Foundation, Hawaii Plantation Village, and the Bishop Museum.
The National Museum of Japanese History is the largest history museum in Japan and its exhibits attract people from all over the world. See https://www.rekihaku.ac.jp/english/
