The National Industrial Promotional Exhibitions were initially planned as preparatory steps before holding an international exposition in Japan. The Third Exhibition (April 1, 1890–July 31, 1890) publicized high-profile visits made by the imperial family to the exhibition halls before the opening, and a print such as this would have helped promote the various future events.
