Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko visited a museum in Tokyo on Thursday to view an exhibition of artifacts and everyday objects created by Japanese-Americans during World War II at their internment camps in the United States.

The exhibit, at the University Art Museum of Tokyo University of the Arts, came as this year marks the 70th anniversary of the forced internment in which around 120,000 Japanese-Americans were put into camps by the U.S. government following the outbreak of World War II.
