English Tour of Famous Meiji Period Pawn Shop

iseya pawn shop


This is a fantastic opportunity to have an English tour of an important cultural property not ordinarily open to the public, the Meiji period pawn shop used by the female novelist Higuchi Ichiyo.

If you would like to attend, just click the "plan to attend" button on the event site.
https://www.facebook.com/events/1674075019476526/


On the afternoon of Nov. 21, the Bunkyo Ward in conjunction with Atomi University will hold a tour in ENGLISH of the Former Iseya Pawn Shop, which was frequented by the famous Japanese woman novelist, Higuchi Ichiyō (1872-1896). This is a very rare opportunity to see the interior of the pawn shop and hear an explanation in English.

PS. The tour is FREE!!!

For more on Higuchi Ichiyō, whose image also graces the 5000 yen bill, see the wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichiyō_Higuchi

Some of her short stories can be found in “In the Shade of Spring Leaves: The Life of Higuchi Ichiyo, with Nine of Her Best Stories”, which I highly recommend.

Pale sherbet orange obiage and teal-green obijime
(Note to self: wish I had an obiage in the teal-green color of that obijime, also wish I had a darker peach obiage to stand out more...)

Personally, I rather like how the Ginza musubi turned out
