Journey through Asia at the Tokyo National Museum - Mythical Animal Wonderland
This event has ended.
Journey through Asia at the Tokyo National Museum is an annual autumn event now in its eighth year. A different theme is chosen each year, and masterpieces related to the theme are displayed throughout the museum in the Toyokan (Asian Gallery), which houses art, crafts, and archaeological artifacts from the Orient.
This year’s theme is “mythical animal wonderland” which focuses on the imaginary animals that occupy a major position in Asian arts, and introduces a rich variety of unique figures, from the dragons and kirin that we have all seen and heard of before to animals whose identities are still unknown.
*To enter the museum, all visitors are required to make a reservation online.
