Kyoto National Museum

Museum in Kyoto, Japan

The Kyoto National Museum-located in the early capital of Japan with its long history and rich culture has enjoyed many visitors. The cultural arts that flourished here spread to the rest of Japan, creating artistic expressions often defined as "Japanese." In this sense, most of what is called Japanese art and culture are closely connected to Kyoto. It is, thus, my wish that our Museum, while taking root in this historical city, will continue its endeavour in presenting Japanese art.
