Exhibition of Kajo Suzuki's donated items
Tuesday March 29 | Sunday May 15.2016

Welcome to the exhibition of the “Collection of Kajo Suzuki’s donated items.”
@Kajo Suzuki, a former president of the Society for Preservation of Japanese Art Swords and former director of the Japanese Sword Museum, passed away on April 20, 2004. After his death, members of Kajo Suzuki’s bereaved family, Ayako Suzuki, Toshiro Suzuki, and Katsuro Suzuki, donated his collection to the Society on his birthday, May 9, 2005, in the hope that it would be available for public appreciation and for research as an academic reference.
 Kajo Suzuki’s collection covers a wide range of Japanese swords, from koto (old swords) and shinto (new swords), to gendaito (contemporary swords), as well as sword fittings and mountings. All of these items are of excellent quality. The collection includes 2 Important Art Objects, 3 Special Important Swords, 1 Special Important Mounting, 21 Important Swords, and 5 Special Important Fittings and Mountings.
 This year is the 13th anniversary of Kajo Suzuki’s death. We once again would like to express our deep gratitude to the Suzuki Family, and hope you will enjoy the collection he loved.
