I should have posted about this a couple of weeks ago, but I was incredibly busy and then I just got back from a much needed vacation. Anyway, today is the last day of this wonderful exhibit. I can't speak highly enough of the items that were on display and how they were displayed.

Kanetsugu lived in a pivotal time of Japanese history, as the transition was made from war to peace. As a senior advisor to Uesugi Kagekatsu, Kanetsugu helped to ensure that the Uesugi clan would survive these tricky times. On display were items belonging to or associated with many of the key historical players that Kanetsugu interacted with, including Uesugi Kenshin, Kagekatsu and Kagetora, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Hidetsugu, Ishida Mitsunari, Tokugawa Ieyasu and others. The collection of letters, scrolls, swords, sword fittings, armor, ceramics, kimono, paintings, screens and many other treasures.

If anyone has a true interest in Naoe Kanetsugu and has about US$25 to spare for the catalog, which is also tastefully put together, it is well worth it.

Here is the link to the Naoe Kanetsugu Exihibition's website at the Suntory Museum of Art in Tokyo.
