Description

The Tokyo National Museum collects, preserves, repairs, exhibits, researches and educates about Asian tangible cultural assets with a focus on Japan. The Tokyo National Museum has a collection of approximately 117,000 works (of which 89 are national treasures and 644 are important cultural properties) and boasts a collection of the highest quality and scope in all of Japan (as of March 2019). The regular exhibitions have approximately 3000 items on display.

There are six exhibition galleries in total. The Honkan showcases Japanese art, the Toyokan has Asian art, the Gallery of Horyuji Treasures displays treasures donated by the Horyuji Temple, the Heiseikan has Japanese archaeological relics on the first floor and special exhibitions on the second floor, and the Kuroda Memorial Hall displays works by the Western-style painter, Kuroda Seiki. The Hyokeikan is now only open for special exhibitions and events.

In addition, for the purpose of giving both foreign and Japanese visitors more opportunities to appreciate our exhibitions, we are open until 9:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights throughout the year.
