In particular, the images of people working to rebuild their country after the war became the starting point for Satoshi Kako’s creations. Her masterpieces such as “Karasu no Banya-san” (Kaiseisha, 1973 ) and “Daruma-chan to Kaminari-chan” (Fukuinkan Shoten, 1968 ) are also filled with her thoughts and strength toward working people.

This exhibition will introduce the charm of Satoshi Kako’s picture books as well as her creative “gaze. During the exhibition period, a stamp rally event will be held in collaboration with the Satoshi Kako Hometown Picture Book Museum “Raku” in Echizen City.
