Inquiries: Osamu Dazai Literature Salon,
Osamu Dazai wrote Hannin, which was published in January 1948, in his workroom near Mitaka Station, with Inokashira Park and Mitaka as the setting of the story. This exhibit will mainly feature copies of manuscripts and first editions of works from Dazai’s later years, such as Shayo and Hannin. The exhibit will also spotlight Nyoze Gamon (pictured) in which Dazai, near death, criticizes Naoya Shiga by name. In addition, Outo-ki Houmei-cho, donated by the family of Saihachiro Ono—Dazai’s disciple—will be displayed for the first time.
