Samurai: Warriors of Japan comes to Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery on Monday 16 October 2017.
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.
This exciting exhibition is the only touring exhibition about Samurai available in the UK and includes a real suit of Samurai armour as well as a range of intriguing artefacts.
Barry Chandler, Director of Pop-Up Exhibitions Ltd said:
“We are really looking forward to bringing our samurai collection to Shrewsbury, we think this is the most comprehensive collection of Last Samurai props and costumes in the UK and we are always adding new items to the exhibition.”
Samurai: Warriors of Japan will be at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery until Sunday 21 January, 2018.
