Bird Photographs is the title of an exhibition in the National Archives displaying photographs taken by Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado in various parts of the world during more than a decade. The exhibition is part of celebrating the centenary diplomatic relations between Finland and Japan.

Princess Takamado reminds us in her greetings, “that birds connect the world as they migrate between their wintering and breeding grounds each year. They recognize no national borders and, as such, they serve as messengers, not only for conservation, but for peace and harmony among all nations and cultures of the world.”

The exhibition has been funded by the Scandinavia Japan Sasakawa Foundation. It has previously been on display in the Castle of Vadstena in Sweden.
