sakoku in London

Hi,
Did you notice that there aren't many Japanese in London any more?
London art schools used to have many Japanese students (5-10%) but they seem to have disappeared, replaced by Chinese and Korean students.

Re: sakoku in London

I have indeed noticed that. And it's not just London; New York art schools now have far fewer Japanese students.

The Japanese who do still go to London art schools also seem less susceptible to influence from the UK while they're there -- check this piece I wrote about an exhibition at the Japanese Embassy in London featuring interviews with Japanese students.
