The 24th Newly Designated Special Important Swords and Fittings
Tuesday, May 17 - Sunday, June12, 2016
The designation of the title of Tokubetsu Jy (special important) by the Society for the Preservation of Japanese Art Swords (NBTHK) has a particularly important meaning. Swords and fittings that have been previously appraised as eimportantf are subjected to a further appraisal from which the typical examples of swords and fittings from every historical period and schools of makers are selected as especial importantf in terms for preservation.
Since we began issuing this designation in 1971, on this occasion, 71 swords, 2 mountings and 5 fittings have received this designation.
The sword is regarded as a cultural asset in Japan. Its beauty is said to reflect the sensibilities of the Japanese aesthetic. It is our hope that you enjoy this exhibition of newly designated special important swords and fittings.
