Maple Viewers (National Treasure, by Kano Hideyori, Muromachi - Azuchi-Momoyama period, 16th century) was photographed in a super high resolution of seven billion pixels, enabling viewers to study the smallest details such as the delicate brushwork, which cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Tokyo National Museum's Honkan galleries and the Gallery of Horyuji Treasures can be viewed through Google’s Street View technology. Viewers can move around freely in the galleries with a 360-degree field of visibility. Descriptions and enlarged views of artworks can be seen by clicking the titles appearing on the screen in Street View.
