<About the exhibition>

Modeled on the Japanese certification of “Living National Treasure,” the French equivalent, called "Maître d' Art" or “Master of Art,” was established in Protected content the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, the ministry in charge of cultural and artistic affairs. The purpose of this certification is to preserve and pass down traditional craftsmanship to future generations while promoting innovation. This is the first exhibition of its kind in the world introducing one artist from each of the fifteen fields, including ceramics, glass, leather, tortoiseshell, feather, umbrellas, fans, and wallpaper. Visitors are invited to view and experience outstanding craftsmanship and tradition, as well as splendid beauty that will inspire future generations.

If the special exhibition is too crowded to enter, we may opt for the regular exhibitions, for which the entrance fee is JPY 620.

I look forward to seeing you at the museum.

Best wishes,

Mahito KATO
