This series of themed exhibition is being held annually to commemorate “The day of The Great Fukuoka Air Raid”, June 19th, 1945. The 26th edition will be introducing the people’s way of living during the war by showing printed materials and pictures.
This is an illustrated story of life during the war. Although it carries a lot of cute images of animals, it’s not just a typical children’s story. It explains how to prepare in case of an air raid.
These are the ramp shades used in that time. These were used to dim the brightness of lights at night, so that enemies wouldn’t locate houses to make them easy targets to attack.
This is how Fukuoka looked like right after the day of The Great Fukuoka Air Raid.
All the artifacts displayed here will show you how pressed life was for Fukuokans during wartime.
Please come see the exhibition and join us in praying for a world without war!
