Known as a Mecca for Asian art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston has been collecting Japanese art and is now said to be home to over 100,000 works. In terms of both quality and quantity, this collection is one of the best in the world and contains many superlative artworks indispensable for an understanding of Japanese art.

This is the largest exhibition to provide an opportunity to view 66 masterpieces from this collection, including 8th century Buddhist artwork, two great handscrolls (“Minister Kibi's Adventures in China” and “Night Attack on the Sanjo Palace”), medieval ink paintings, early Kano school, early modern paintings like Ogata Korin and Hasegawa Tohaku, and an eccentric genius Soga Shohaku
