Special Exhibition "National Treasures: Masterpieces of Japan" overview 
The history of the Kyoto National Museum is closely related to the history of Japan’s National Treasures. It was 120 years ago that the museum opened; in that same year of 1897, the term “National Treasures” was first used as part of the newly enacted Law for the Preservation of Old Shrines and Temples. To celebrate this landmark anniversary, the Kyoto National Museum presents a major special exhibition of Japan’s National Treasures, the first showing of its kind in over forty years.
What constitutes a National Treasure? The term “National Treasure” is the highest designation given by the government of Japan to a very small number of artworks and artifacts of unique and extraordinary historical, artistic, and scholarly merit. Most importantly, these rarest of works eloquently and exquisitely bespeak the history and culture of Japan and its people. The Kyoto National Museum’s exhibition will feature approximately two hundred National Treasures, including painting, calligraphy, sculpture, decorative arts, and archeological artifacts, shown in several installations over the exhibition period. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to encounter some of the most beautiful and significant works in Japanese history.
