Havana.- The history and culture of the Japanese region of Tohoku will reach Cuba thanks to a photographic exhibition that will be held at the Minor Basilica of the Convent of Saint Francis of Assisi.
The exhibition, entitled Tohoku: Through the Eyes of Japanese Photographers, was organized by the Japanese Embassy in Cuba and the Office of the Historian of the City of Havana.
The exhibit consists of 123 photos by nine independent photographers and a group of artists.
This initiative is expected to increase people's knowledge about Tohoku's culture, climate and life, through the points of view of Japanese photographers.
Among the artists who participate in the exhibition are Ichiro Kojima, Hideo Haga, Masatoshi Naito, Hiroshi Oshima, Naoya Hatakeyama, Meiki Lin, Masaru Tatsuki, Nao Tsuda and the Sendai Collection group.
Tohoku was one of the last regions being annexed to the current Japan and is made up of the prefectures of Akita, Aomori, Fukushima, Iwatw, Miyagi and Yamagata.
