Butokukai Embroidery


The Dai Nippon Butokukai was formed in the early years of the Meiji Era (1895 ) to preserve the traditional martial virtues of Feudal Japan for the new, and modern Imperial Japanese Empire that was ruled by a Constitutional monarch, the Emperor. It came to an end in the years following Japan’s surrender after WWII because of its close relationship with the pre-war government.
