The discussion includes the doctors explications on the historical significance of panorama-kan (panorama exhibition halls) in Japan, including most famously Tokyos Nippon Panorama, built in 1890 and demolished in 1910. While a phenomenon at the time, the popularity of the panorama in Japan was ultimately short-lived; the Meiji period ended in 1912. Relive the magic!
