The treasures in the Kyoto National Museum have been preserved over centuries, embodying the cultural heritage not only of Kyoto and Japan, but of all humankind.
Unfortunately, in recent years it has become increasingly difficult to procure funding for the kind of activities (acquisition, storage, conservation, etc.) necessary to preserve cultural heritage for future generations.
In April 2012, the Kyoto National Museum established the Kyoto National Museum Cultural Property Conservation Fund to generate funding for these important activities through donations from museum supporters.
We sincerely appreciate your generous support.
