The Jomon period is believed to have begun about 13,000 years ago. Hunting, fishing, and gathering were the primary means of sustenance for the people of this period. Exercising their ingenuity in their daily lives, the Jomon people created various tools that are full of vigor and mysterious charm. Under the theme of “Jomon beauty,” this exhibition showcases outstanding artworks created in various regions of the Japanese archipelago from the beginning to the end of the Jomon period, shedding light on the technique and spirit expressed in these works. Visitors are invited to witness this magnificent “surge of beauty” that lasted 10,000 years.
