A Tokyo exhibit introducing UNESCO World Heritage sites related to Japan's industrial revolution opened Monday, drawing ire from South Korean media for failing to show that Koreans had been forced to work at some of the sites during World War II.

The information center on the Sites of Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution held an opening ceremony in late March but had been closed to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. It opened its doors to the public on a reservation-only basis to limit the number of guests.
