Nara National Museum| 奈良国立博物館

The Western-style structure of the “Nara Buddhist Sculpture Hall” is representative of the Meiji Era. The new wing, designed by Junzo Yoshimura in 1972, houses one of the most important collections of Buddhist art in Japan. The museum frequently changes its permanent exhibition display of sculptures and scrolls, and offers the opportunity for Buddhist art lovers to return frequently to its galleries.
