Christopher Harding begins his exploration of some of the darker sides of Japan's recent history by reflecting on popular doubts and misgivings about mainstream modern life through the story of a building: Deer Cry Hall. The rise and fall of this single, iconic piece of late nineteenth century architecture represented Japanese concerns about foreignness and fakery in the new world their modernizing leaders were creating. Producer: Sheila Cook.
