Established in 1872, the Tokyo National Museum is the oldest and also the largest national museum in Japan and one of the largest museums in the world. Its collection of more 110,000 objects includes 87 National Treasures and 610 Important Cultural Properties. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that photography is permitted in the galleries (with certain limitations: no flash, for example). Herewith a very small sampling from the museum’s enormous, and enormously impressive, collection.
