Organized as part of the 2019 Turkish Culture Year in Japan, this exhibition at the National Art Center in Tokyo presents the treasures of Topkapi Palace to Japanese audiences. In addition to about 170 objects from Topkapi Palace, the exhibition recreates spaces from the palace, including the library, a prayer room, the harem and a courtyard. This exhibition highlights the friendly ties between Turkey and Japan by presenting works that were exchanged between the Ottoman sultans and Japan’s imperial family, and includes other Mejii-period art objects making a return visit to Japan.
