Provided by the Ohara Institute for Social Research, this site showcases 200 of the Institute's collection of about 1,400 posters of labor and social movements in post-1945 Japan. Labor unions were first legalized in Japan only in 1945 and in their early years engaged in prolonged struggles with employers over wages and working conditions. At the site, visitors can view posters from this period produced by both labor unions and industry federations. These are organized by union and offered in slideshow format with partial translations. This is a nice exhibition that should appeal to anyone interested in Japanese social history or the art of the political poster.
