"Samurai Summer" at Honolulu Museum of Art features traveling exhibition, film fest

The Honolulu Museum of Art’s “Samurai Summer” offers an in-depth look at the artwork and lifestyle tied to warrior culture of samurai, who served nobility from the 12th through 19th centuries, most notably during the reign of the Tokugawa shoguns (1603–1868). Among the summer’s highlights: one of the most comprehensive exhibitions on samurai ever created; a lecture about samurai armor given by the exhibition’s curator; and a film festival that pays tribute to Hollywood’s bygone Japanese film theaters
