"From Confucious to Ukiyoe"

The Toyo Bunko - or Oriental Library – a museum well known for its collection of valuable Japanese and Oriental books, is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year with a special exhibit featuring ancient Chinese and Edo Period art materials.

The museum was established as an Oriental study research library by Mr. Hisaya Iwasaki, third president of the Mitsubishi Corporation, in November 1924.
Mr. Iwasaki donated land and operating funds as well as his own collection of the Iwasaki Library which has been expanded by the collection of national treasures and one million books.

Admission usually costs Yen 900 but FCCJ members' price is Yen 450 per person and a special lunch is offered at Yen 2,000. The total fee is Yen 2,450.
Please note young persons under 18 years old are not allowed to enter the ukiyo-e display room as some exhibits include "shunga," or erotic prints.
