closed Rotation of Japanese Swords

The show

The sword, together with the gem and the mirror, is one of the three imperial insignia of Japan, representing respectively the three fundamental virtues of value, benevolence and wisdom.

 

The loan from I.N.T.K. (Itaria Nihon Token Kyokai), the Italian Association for the Japanese Sword, consists of tokens, Japanese swords forged with the traditional method: tachi, wakizashi, katana and a lot, with their respective frames. The exhibited weapons are replaced approximately every six months so as not to damage the most delicate parts, such as the lacquered sheaths, with a prolonged exposure, and to allow the visitor to enjoy the variety of works received on loan.

 

The I.N.T.K. is a non-profit cultural association founded in Bologna in 1990 whose main purposes are the study of Japanese blades, intended as objects of art and not as "war" objects, and the diffusion of knowledge of tokens. The I.N.T.K. it is accredited at the Japanese Embassy in Rome, the Consulate General of Japan in Milan, the Japan Foundation in Rome and the NBTHK (Nihon Bijutsu Token Hozon Kyokai, Japanese Sword Conservation Society) in Tokyo.
