The Front and Back Side of Japanese sword
 


Date
Oct 24(Sat) ~ Dec 24(Thu),2020


 Greetings

 “Hyori-ittai” is a Japanese idiom which has the same meaning as “Two sides of the same coin”.
Many things in this world have a “front side” and a “back side” which relate closely to each other.
It is also the same in the world of Japanese swords, mountings and fittings.
As tachi or katana have a front side and back side, in the world of Japanese swords, fittings and mountings, too, specific styles are existing for each “side”. 

In this exhibition, we focus on not only the front sides but the back sides which often is overlooked.
We are exhibiting swords which shows prominent differences between the front side and the back side in the shapes, jigane and hamon.
We are also introducing the making processes, the stories and the history of Japanese swords hidden in the “back”.

We hope that you enjoy this deep world of Japanese swords through a unique approach.
