The 65rd Newly Designated Important Swords
and Fittings Exhibition
Jan. 11（Sat) ー Feb .16 (Sun),2020
The Society for the Preservation of Japanese Art Swords (NBTHK) has been researching and appraising swords since 1948. Currently, the NBTHK regularly holds appraisal examinations with the objective of authenticating swords owned by members of the public. Swords are first designated as Hozon: genuine example. Then later, higher level grades such as Tokubetsu Hozon, Juyo-token (important sword) and Tokubetsu-juyo-token (special important sword) designation is awarded to blades that are important historical data in a healthy condition, worthy of preservation, deemed to be genuine examples, as well as exceptional works of art.
We hope that you enjoy this exhibition.
