This event has ended.

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Emperor's enthronement, the Tokyo National Museum will hold a special exhibition uniting a rich spectrum of works from the imperial collections. The exhibition will be held in two parts, and will include objects owned by the imperial household as well as treasures from the Shosoin Repository and Sannomaru Shozokan (The Museum of the Imperial Collections). Part 1 will be on view October 6 - November 3, and Part 2 will be on view November 12 - 29.

Through this exhibition, the most comprehensive display ever of treasures from the imperial collections, we invite visitors to explore the beauty and tradition preserved by the imperial household for generations.
