Images from the Exhibit

During the twentieth century, Naga Fujikazu was perhaps the foremost Japanese sword collector in the Kansai region. Though professionally prominent as a medical doctorate in the pharmaceuticals industry, Naga was also widely known as a passionate connoisseur of celebrated historical blades . This exhibition, a comprehensive assemblage of the famous swords in his collection, reveals Naga’s discriminating taste, his erudite knowledge, and his enduring passion for the finest Japanese swords.
