An Introduction to Swords
Kyushu National Museum, Room 9
1 January 2020 (Wed) ? 24 February 2020 (Mon)

Japanese swords have always been a subject of fascination both within and outside of Japan. Global interest in Japanese swords has grown over the past few years, and continues to do so even as we enter a new decade.
Nevertheless, the barrier to understanding and appreciating these exquisite works of art looms high, the various terminology associated with sword parts and designs proving archaic and inaccessible even to the Japanese. This exhibition aims to provide an introduction to Japanese swords, with multilingual panels and descriptions explaining their main features as well as their history.
