About "Children of the Showa Era"

Children of the Showa era" is a work by doll artist Michiko Ishii that recreates the love, peace, and bonds between people in the 1950s through dolls and seasonal dioramas.

In 1993, the first exhibition of "Children of the Showa Era" was held, with 100 works on display. Since then, he has held about 90 exhibitions across the country, including the first solo exhibition by an existing artist at the Edo-Tokyo Museum in 2000, as well as by invitation from local governments and sponsorship from newspaper and television stations. At present, he has a total of 238 works and 1.5 million people have visited his exhibitions.

This is a story that traces the memories of being a child in the 1950s and serves as an encouragement to the children of today and to a generation that has survived the difficult times.

These works, which were created using dolls as motifs, were well received at exhibitions around the country and became one of the precursors of the current "Showa 30s."
