Excellent interest !

Ambassador Neary joining the hunt

As the hunt for the Ogres of Oeyama is coming to its conclusion we were very pleased to be able to share the project with his Excellency Ambassador Neary from the Irish Embassy in The Hague. He was previously based in the Irish Embassy in Tokyo and was keen to see the conserved handscrolls and maintain his interest in Japanese culture.
