The Japanese collections at the British Museum hold some 30,000 objects, they comprise fine and decorative arts, antiquities, ethnographic and historical materials dating from ancient prehistory to the present day.


The refurbishment of the galleries has provided a chance to re-think the presentation of objects, and the techniques used to interpret them. Japan from Prehistory to the Present is a sequence of significant stories told by remarkable objects which are explored from many angles. From Ancient Japan (before 1200) through Medieval Japan (1200-1600) and Edo Japan (1600-1868) to Modern Japan (1853 to present), the galleries provide a chronological journey of the development of this intriguing nation.


Monthly public presentations of ��The Way of Tea�� by the Urasenke Foundation, using the traditional teahouse will also be held inside the Japanese Galleries.
