Yonezawa City Uesugi Museum Collection Exhibit – The World of the Uesugi Clan Archives VII ~ The Sengoku Warlord Writes

The collection exhibit, The World of the Uesugi Clan Archives VII ~ The Sengoku Warlord Writes, will begin from 10th February 2024!

The Uesugi Clan Archives have been treasured for generations as written record of the clan’s existence in history. After it was donated to Yonezawa city in 1989, it was subsequently designated as a national treasure in 2001. Consisting of over 2,000 documents dating from the Kamakura period to the Meiji and Taisho periods, the archive has been valued greatly for how well they have been preserved and the exchanges contained within. Learn how the archives were handled at the time, and the meaning of the paper upon which they are written.

This exhibit will focus on exploring the archives by focusing on roughly 40 documents from the Sengoku period and examining them through various perspectives such as their their contents, the relationships between the people involved in the exchanges, and how the letters were delivered. How the letters were written, sealed, folded, and opened will also be explored.
