Japanese swords and armour often embody the spirit of Japanese artistry.
This special display “The Exhibition of SAMURAI” showcases a collection of swords and armour which are a source of great pride in Japan.
Traditional Japanese weapons were not viewed merely as battle tools. Captured in each is a masterful display of craftsmanship, refined over the years.
This exhibition boasts 150 treasured swords and sets of armour from the 11th to 17th Centuries, and details how they evolved during this turbulent time.
