The First Japan Photography Grand Salon was held in the Asahi Kaikan in Osaka from November 26th until the December 2nd, 1926. It was funded by the Asahi Newspaper and organised by the All-Kansai Association of Photographic Societies, which would merge a few weeks later with the All-Kanto Association to form the All-Japan Association of Photographic Societies (Zen Nihon Shashin Renmei). Umesaka Ori (1900-65) won the first prize of the competition with a shot of 'Reeds' on a shore. Very rare. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
