This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of manga artist Machiko Hasegawa (died in 1992). Born in Saga on January 30, 1920, Mr. Hasegawa moved to Tokyo in 1934 (Showa 9) and became a disciple of Mr. Suiho Tagawa of "Norakuro". The following year, the magazine "Shojo Club" Makes his debut as a manga artist. After that, a four-frame manga was serialized in newspapers in Tokyo such as "Tokyo Nichi Nichi Shimbun" and "Kokumin Shinbun". After the war, newspaper media cannot be excluded when talking about Mr. Hasegawa, such as serializing "Sazae-san" in "Evening Fukunichi" and "Asahi Shimbun".
In the "newspaper gallery" corner of the permanent exhibition room, 14 related materials from the museum's collection will be exhibited. We hope that you will be able to experience the charm of Hasegawa's works through the newspaper media that has progressed with the times.
Outline of the event
News Park (Japan Newspaper Museum)
On July 20, 2016, the News Park (Japan Newspaper Museum) was reborn as a facility where you can learn while experiencing the roles of the information society and newspapers and journalism. In April 2019, we opened a new permanent exhibition room with an expanded historical exhibition zone. There are many fun ways to learn, such as introducing the on and off of newspaper reporters on the touch panel display. The interview experience game "Yokohama Time Travel" is a time slip in the past by holding a tablet over a diorama that reproduces the cityscape of Yokohama. We will cover and unravel the mysteries of Yokohama, such as the arrival of Perry, the conclusion of the Convention of Kanagawa, and the secret of the birth of Nihon Odori and Yamashita Park. In addition to holding special exhibitions and various events, we also create and hand out a visit commemorative newspaper to those who wish.About the facility Access
