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.

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
Go collection are also on view on the 1st floor of
the same building.
