To portray the Japanese way of life, both traditional and modern, the pavilion has a typical Japanese garden in miniature and a typical Japanese room. There are displays of Japanese customs, foods, daily life and architecture. In display cases are samples of the exquisite handicrafts for which Japanese artisans are famous: silks, hand-made pottery and carved miniatures." (Century 21 Exposition. (1962).
