On the walls are hung Japanese name plaques. Girls were forced to wear kimonos and use Japanese names. The recreation explores the idea of erased ethnic identity.
The artificial made-up Japanese names which the women were forced to use contrasts with their real Chinese names at the entrance to the exhibit.
