This museum is dedicated to my grandfather Kuhara Fuasnosuke, who founded the Hitachi mine, which became the second largest copper mine in Japan. Out of this facility grew Hitachi Electric.

MY EPIC GRANDFATHER

My Japanese grandfather, KUHARA FUSANOSUKE was an INDUSTRIAL MAGNATE and a powerful POLITICIAN. I knew him for the last 10 years of his life, in the twilight of his empire.

He built the second largest copper mine in Japan, which had 6200 employees. Kuhara owned other heavy industries and founded HITACHI and NISSAN.

As a politician and diplomat, he met with Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin, Prime minister Neville Chamberlain of England, Emporer Hirohito, and many Japanese Prime Ministers. He was the head of an important political party, was elected to the Diet, and became a Cabinet Minister. He believed in Sun Yat Sen and invested heavily in his Chinese Revolution.  Kuhara was honored by the writer Yukio Mishima for his involvement in the February 26th incident.

All the imagery originated on 35mm film and early digital cameras, then composited on consumer Mac computers using Photoshop. It’s not perfect but you get the idea and the flavor. The website was completed in 1999 when all we had was DSL dialup. You’ll need to enlarge the images on your browser.
