There were as many samurai women as men during the Tokugawa era (1600–1868) in Japan, but their lives are often overlooked.

Professor Luke Roberts of University of California, Santa Barbara, will speak about his recent research into the lives of samurai women who hailed from Kōchi, an area in southwestern Japan. Following the lecture, Roberts will be joined by Hawaii State Senator Brian Taniguchi and his wife, Jan, to talk about this subject and artifacts from their family.

Included with museum admission. RSVPs are recommended using the link below.

Presented in partnership with the Nikkei Genealogical Society.
