On March 11, 2011 the tsunami following the Great East Japan Earthquake dealt severe damage to cultural properties that had supported the culture of the Tohoku area in northeastern Japan. After this disaster, the Tokyo National Museum cooperated with institutions including the Rikuzentakata City Museum and the Iwate Prefectural Museum to restore these damaged cultural properties. This exhibition will share with visitors the results of four years of effort and inform them of this restoration project’s current status.
