A special exhibition "Swords of Kyoto: Master Craftsmanship from an Elegant Culture" is held at Kyoto National Museum.

Even without understanding swords, you shall be surprised how present the unique personality of the swords of Kyoto is.

It is a wonderful opportunity for us locals to view the halberd of Naginata Boko, usually seen at Gion Festival (from the Muromachi period), and we can meet the Torarin (a mascot).

Held until November 25.
