Junzo Shono Exhibition: 15 Years After His Death

Special Exhibition "15 Years After His Death: Junzo Shono Exhibition -- It's So Nostalgic to Be Alive!"

Shono Junzo (1921-2009) was a writer with ties to Kanagawa who lived in Ikuta, Kawasaki for nearly half a century from 1961 until his death. After winning the Akutagawa Prize in 1955 for "Poolside Scenes," Shono gained attention as one of the "third generation of new writers," and left behind many works, including novels and essays detailing his daily life with his family and acquaintances, and oral history novels based on interviews with ordinary people. His works, created under the belief that all literature is a human document, express the "sorrow" that lies at the root of life and evoke in the reader a "nostalgia" and emotion of being alive.
This exhibition looks back on Shono's literature and life through materials from the "Shono Junzo Library" donated by Shono and his family, as well as valuable belongings he left behind.
