Exhibition title
I visited Exhibition “Minakata Kumagusu ~His personality , Informatics and Nature” I am interested in him.

In 19th century, His 51 papers were published in Science journal “Nature”

I was interested in him.
He is a learned man with a retentive memory.
He went to study abroad in America and England(1886~1900)

And he came back to Japan,he lived in Kumano in Wakayama prefecture. It is his home town.
There is nice culture and nature in the Kumano area.(Kumano area )
He was learning many things, history, botany, ethnology, theology etc from Nature.

He deepened exchanges with the curators of the British Museum.
He visited often there and wrote the papers and Posted in the Science journal “Nature”

One of the most interesting is Mushrooms and slime molds.
He collected and recorded them in a caramel box.

One day the Japanese emperor visited Kumano.
He was ordered guidance.
After, the emperor want to get his collection of slime molds.
When dedicate it to the Emperor, it was still in a caramel box.
People said they were outrageous.
But the Empperor said “Is not it enough?”
The Empperor will think “His record is important”
And the empperor loved his pure mind.
