Genji Monogatari Tekagami in our collection is a designated important cultural property, and a compilation of 80 pages, each of which bears a painting by Tosa Mitsuyoshi, an artist of the Tosa School in Sakai, Osaka from the beginning of the early modern period. The passages accompanying each of the scenes were copied by hand by 18 court nobles. Following designation of this work as an important cultural property in 2013, we conducted a preservation/restoration project over four years, starting in 2014. This exhibition is being held to commemorate the completion of the restoration and all 80 pages will be exhibited in rotation.
* The selection for the display is planned to change during the exhibition period.
