Kyushu National Museum

The Kyushu National Museum was established in 2005, and was Japans first new national museum in 108 years. While the National Museums in Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara boast their collections of art, the Kyushu National Museum focuses on Japanese history. Located in Dazaifu, Fukuoka prefecture, with its historical background as a contact point for cultural exchange between the Asian Continent and Japan, the museum carries with it "a new perspective on Japanese cultural formation in the context of Asian history." The Cultural Exchange Room (permanent exhibition) comprises a 1,500-square-meter core exhibition room and 11 related exhibition rooms under five historical categories. The exhibition constantly changes and always features its predominant theme, the history of cultural exchanges between Japan and other Asian countries.'
