About Us

About Us

The Nihon Bijutsu Token Hozon Kyokai (NBTHK) was founded in February 1948 as an authorized foundation by the government in order to save Japanese sword that was in a critical situation of total destruction when the Occupation Forces tried to confiscate all the Japanese swords from Japanese people just after World War II. Also the Sword Museum that belongs to the NBTHK was built and opened in May 1968 with co-operation and financial support of its members.

It is our purpose that we conserve Japanese swords that have artistic value and make them be open to the public. Also we support the preservation and the development of sword forging and polishing techniques as well as koshirae making as intangible cultural assets. Meanwhile, we make all possible effort to investigate and secure the material of Japanese sword and help people in studying Japanese sword appreciation.

NBTHK Fundraising

To our supporters,

We deeply appreciate the continuous support for, understanding of, and cooperation with the NBTHK displayed by our members and associates. The NBTHK is now preparing to move into new facilities in a building currently under construction in Ryogoku, Tokyo. This is a very expensive undertaking that is not yet fully funded. Consequently, the NBTHK is hoping that its supporters and members will respond positively to our efforts to raise additional funds to complete the move and to improve its programs.

The goal of the NBTHK is to preserve and enhance the very special and traditional knowledge of and appreciation for the Japanese sword well into the future. The NBTHK serves not only as a foundation for efforts to promote the Japanese sword in Japan, but around the world as well. Our staff will continue to work diligently and in collaboration with our members and other organizations inside Japan and globally. The NBTHK would be very grateful if you would consider making a meaningful financial donation to help ensure the success of these efforts.

Sincerely,
Tadahisa Sakai
Chairman, Nihon Bijutsu Token Hozon Kyokai
