Opening on Saturday 18th March: an exhibition dedicated to the University of Tokyo's famous "Akamon" Red Gate (a celebrated symbol of the university in Japan).
The current gate was built in 1827 to mark the marriage of the shogun's daughter Yohime to the lord of the Maeda clan. The exhibition discusses the history of the Maeda residence - now the University's Hongo Campus - and showcases some recent archaeological discoveries. Free / open to all (the English pdf is here: http://www.um.u-tokyo.ac.jp/exhibition/2017akamon_e.pdf).
