Event & What's New
Cultural Heritage Online relaunched its website in April 2022.
The new design and the addition of a new digital viewer function, "The Time Machine Navigation of JAPAN " will surely bring us new joys and experiences.
We hope you will continue to make use of our services.
In order to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection, some museums and art galleries are taking measures such as temporary closures, changes in exhibition periods, and cancellation of events.
