Ends in 28 days

This exhibition highlights the friendly ties between Turkey and Japan by presenting works that were exchanged between the Ottoman sultans and Japan’s Imperial family and other Mejii-period art objects making a return visit to Japan. It has been organized in the hope of expanding the range of interactions between the two countries. Through approximately 170 works, most of which are coming to Japan for the first time, this exhibition will provide an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of Turkish history, culture, and its art-loving national character.
