Established in 1900, the Tokyo dental college is the oldest dental school in Japan. First based in Kanda, in 1929 a large, new research institute was built in the Suidobashi as part of the campus. Fifty years later, the building has become outdated, but was still cherished by the administration and students of the school. Having been awarded the Ihei Kimura award in 1978, she was chosen to create a record of the building and its environs. She spent a year observing the students and teachers; the resulting book is a beautiful hommage to history and spirit of the institution.
