Meiji at 150 Podcast, Episode 013, Dr. Millie Creighton (University of British Columbia) Creighton, Millie R.; Grunow, Tristan


In this episode, Dr. Creighton revisits the Meiji Period through the lens of tourism, exploring the way the Restoration is repackaged and resold at local tourist sites from Kagoshima to Kochi today. We discuss the popularity of “historical theme parks” such as Meiji Village and Nikko Edo Village, the UNESCO designation of Meiji-era industrial sites, and the recent boom in TV dramatizations of the Meiji and Showa periods.
