Some 50 works of netsuke selected from Their Highnesses’ donations are on view at the Prince Takamado Collection Room on the 2nd floor of the Museum’s main building.
The display period is from March 21 to June 4, 2023. Details are available at:
I strongly recommend this display since you can
see a wide variety of superb contemporary netsuke
by Japanese and non-Japanese artists!
A selection of antique netsuke and inro from the museum collection are also on view on the 1st floor of the same building.
In November 2022, the Museum published a catalogue of netsuke newly donated from the Prince Takamado collection. Click here for details.
Princess Takamado recently published a book. Although the text is all in Japanese, the photos taken by the Princess are fascinating! Click here for more information.
