Fujita Junnosuke (“Jun Fujita”) was born in the late nineteenth century in the city of Onomichi on a small island in western Japan’s Inland Sea (Setonai-kai). The city is known for having inspired writers and poets with its scenery and prosperity. In this seminar, we will look closely at Fujita’s remaining personal belongings (e.g., letters and photos) to explore how Onomichi nurtured his artistic expression during his early years living there. We will also discuss other literary works related to Onomichi in the early twentieth century.
