Spectacular touring exhibition, Samurai: Warriors of Japan, is to open at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery on Monday 16 October.
This exciting exhibition brings graphically to life the story of the Samurai and their fall from power as Japan opened up to the West.
Samurai: Warriors of Japan illustrates a range of armour, weapons and costumes using films props from the Tom Cruise blockbuster movie, The Last Samurai (2003), the only Samurai film ever to be made in the West. The Oscar nominated costumes and props have come direct from California and have never before been displayed in the UK.
