Important Cultural Property is the status given to paintings, sculptures, decorative arts, calligraphy, books, documents, historical materials, archaeological objects, and buildings that have been deemed culturally or scientifically important to Japan. They are designated by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology as items of national heritage that should be preserved for future generations. From among these, items that are inherently superior or have a high artistic value are designated as National Treasures.

This exhibition contains 51 items, which were newly designated as National Treasures or Important Cultural Properties in 2014, including Dogu from Nakappara site, Nagano Prefecture (National Treasure). We hope you enjoy the rare opportunity to see these important items.
