Kamakura National Treasure House

Located in the Kamakura region of Japan, the Kamakura National Treasure House was built in 1928 as a storage house and exhibiting center for sculpture, paintings, and other important objects. Previously owned by temples, shrines, and private collectors in the Kamakura region, the objects in the present collection consist largely of the Kamakura (1185-1333) and Muromachi (1333-1568) periods.
