Modernity

Modernization is a theme that runs deep through almost all propaganda textiles. Japan was determined to take its place as a world power on equal footing with leading Western nations. From the time of the opening up of Japan in 1854, it was entranced with the symbols of modernity and quickly embraced industrialization and new technologies, western clothing, toys, sports and the myriad paraphernalia of modern life. Planes and trains became the most widely used symbols of modernity.
