When Off The Fence needed old images of both Japanese emperors and citizens, they turned to meijishowa. It was a bit like shopping in a supermarket; at a single location—meijishowa—the producers were able to find no less than six images that were both appropriate and up to their high standards.
Asia’s Monarchies received a commendation at the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union Prizes 2010 in Japan.
At meijishowa, we bring the past to life.
