Since the Tokyo National Museum became a part of the Independent Administrative Institutions in 2001, we have been making a continuous effort, as a more accessible museum with gained independence, to provide enhanced service in response to the citizens' needs.

Benefitting from the characteristics as an Independent Administrative Institution, the Tokyo National Museum has been striving to enrich and expand the museum's principle activities of acquisition, preservation, exhibition, as well as research and education. By doing so, the museum aims to take not merely a national, but an international core role as a hall of Japanese and Asian cultural properties.

As a national museum, fundamental operations are still supported by the state. However, under the state's increasingly strenuous financial structure, it is crucial that we combine our own efforts with the generous support from the public and establish a solid museum operation base.

We therefore launched the Tokyo National Museum Membership Scheme (TNM Members) in 2002. We sincerely ask for your understanding, and hope to have you join us as a member to support the Tokyo National Museum.

TNM Individual members helps support the museum's operation. Your membership fee will be used for various museum activities including acquisition, conservation, and education (Details are reported annually to members at our appreciation event). Three membership types - sustaining, special, and premium, are available.
To show our gratitude, various benefits, including invitations to special exhibitions and TNM news subscription are available depending on an individual's membership contribution.

*Membership benefits are available by mail to Japanese address only.

Taxation on Membership Fee

The Tokyo National Museum is one of the designated public-service promotion corporations. Individuals and corporate making contributions to the Tokyo National Museum receive preferential tax treatments different from standard tax deduction for other corporations. The membership fee paid to the Tokyo National Museum is subject to this tax deduction system.

Details on Preferential Tax Treatments

When an individual makes donations to a public-service promotion corporation, the amount paid is treated as a "designated donation" and a certain amount is subject to tax deduction following appropriate procedures. This system allows either [the sum of total donation made during the year] or [Amount equal to 40% of total income] (Applied to the lower amount of the two) minus 2000 yen to be deducted from taxes.

Ex) If total annual income is 8,000,000 yen:
40% of total annual income = 3,200,000 yen
Tax deducted in this case is calculated as follows:
If total amount of donation is 50,000 yen; (50,000 yen - 2,000 yen = 48,000 yen)
If total amount of donation is 4,000,000 yen; 3,200,000 - 2,000 yen = 3,198,000 yen

How to Apply for Preferential Tax Deduction

Please submit the receipt of your membership from the Tokyo National Museum when filing your taxes. The receipt is a necessary document to receive preferential tax treatment. Please store them securely.

*Credit card transaction takes a few months to complete. If paying with credit card after October, receipt of your donation may not be issued until the following year. If you are making donations after October and would like the tax deducted the same year, please pay by bank transfer, or with cash directly at museum ticket window.
