In the summer of 1918 riots happened across Japan as the price of rice suddenly increased. For weeks huge riots took place in urban areas, including violent riots in Nagoya. An artist named Sakurai Seikō, who later worked as a curator at the Tokugawa Museum, made a handscroll that depicted the riots ("Kome sōdō emaki") and he later donated the handscroll to the museum. The handscroll depicts life in the city of Nagoya at a key point in the modern period, and it provides incredible details about daily life in Nagoya in 1918, as well as insights into how the local population responded to the police and Japanese military at the time. This interdisciplinary workshop about the "Kome sōdō emaki" will examine Japanese urban culture, including attitudes toward violence and political authority, before the Second World War.
