A Message from the Director

Oct. 4, 2022

"Modern Japan Package 2022" has begun!

We are pleased to present the "Modern Japan Package 2022" exhibition with the support of major packaging-related organizations in Japan. This year's exhibition, the eighth of its kind, features award-winning works from packaging competitions sponsored by numerous organizations as well as carefully selected works that reflect the exhibition’s theme.

Packaging is needed across a wide range of genres so it continues to be developed and improved on a day-to-day basis. As general consumers become increasingly aware of energy consumption and the need to reduce its impact on the environment, various innovations are being made in packaging in terms of functionality, shape, design, materials, manufacturing processes and even disposal. We hope you will discover the connection between packaging, our daily lives, and society through the approximately 100 exhibited works.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to the award winners and all those whose cooperation helped make this exhibition possible.
