New Year's Sugoroku published by the women's magazine Shufu no Tomo for New Year 1929. The brightly coloured images in the sugoroku are based on the work of popular 1920's manga artist Okamoto Ippei (1886-1948), who was a cartoonist with the Asahi Newspaper. Okamoto was also known as a social critic and 'renaissance man' who, amongst other things, accompanied Albert Einstein on his tour of Japan in 1922-23. This manga presents the life choices faced by a young woman in late 1920s Japan. Its images present a vivid picture of Taisho Era Japanese culture, with is range of lifestyles, from those of the of 'modern' young men and women with their fashionable dances and haircuts, to those of struggling farmers. the central picture which concludes the game is a caricature of wealthy and successful family life.
