The beautiful and young “Bishojo” girls are characters familiar in contemporary Japanese popular culture, widely portrayed in manga work and cartoons. But Japan’s fascination with these figures has an extensive history. From ukiyo-e prints from the Edo age (1603-1868)

to the Showa era (1926-1989), and from beer logos to plays inspired by the manga work of Osamu Tezuka, the exhibition gathers together more than 300 depictions of Bishojo.
Until 16th February
