Exhibition: 36 Kasen: The 36 Immortals of Japanese Poetry

36 Kasen: the thirty-six immortals of Japanese poetry

3 February – 4 March 

This small display of illustrated manuscripts from the Bodleian Japanese Library will celebrate the thirty-six great poets. Despite their ancient history, the thirty-six poets, one of the most important and durable icons in Japanese culture, are virtually unknown outside Japan.

It’s in the Bodleian Temporary Displays space, the Old Library Entrance. Open 9am – 7pm Monday – Friday, 9am – 4:30pm Saturday and 11am – 5pm Sunday. Admission is free.
