Search the collections of the Kyoto National Museum by keyword or category to view comprehensive images of objects that interest you. This database currently contains over 10,000 images of over 5,000 objects or sets of objects from the museum collection. We hope that this service will be of use to art-lovers, students, teachers and scholars around the world.

*Works not owned by the museum but housed by agreement with their owners are not available on this database.











We shoot the image of national treasures and important cultural properties by a high-resolution digital image. And we publicize the images on this data base by six languages (Japanese, English, Korean, Spanish, French, and Chinese). Zooming the image, you can see the detail of the work. The explanation is in each work.
