A Little Bit Of Street Art,

well a long bit actually at 262 ft long or 80 meters if you prefer,

160 years ago the Kingdom of Prussia and the Tokugawa Shogunate signed the Treaty of Amity, Commerce and Navigation, which today is largely considered the starting point of German-Japanese diplomatic relations. In tribute to these long-standing ties, the mural has been created along the exterior wall of the German Embassy in Tokyo,

the monumental mural, which was curated by TokyoDex and created by the Osaka-based Japanese artist duo WHOLE9, features portraits of pioneers and events which have shaped the long history of relations between the two nations, what a neat piece of street art.
