  1. i bet you there may have been. Did he not write about what intrigued him the most? and where did he write about it? thanks!
  2. True, but as someone mentioned that at the Dublin 1853 Exhibition, Japan was featured as courts, which were not represented by Japan herself. Maybe there was something like this in New York as well?
  3. Dear everyone, I am hoping that someone can help me here. I am trying to figure out if Japan participated or anything of Japan was shown at the 1853 World's Fair in New York. There is a song by Ryuichi Sakamoto, which remakes Stephen Foster's Jeanie with Light Brown Hair, making it sound like a Japanese/Okinawan song! I am wondering if perhaps Stephen Foster was exposed to Japanese music. Does anyone know if he might have been present? Thanks --Amir
