Information

The World Heritage Nijo-jo Castle in Kyoto is not only a property of Japan, but a common property shared by the whole world. To be able to preserve and hand down this heritage to the next generation, we plan a full-scale repair of cultural properties starting with the National Treasure Ninomaru Palace.

This full-scale repair project is the first major repair conducted since the castle was raised by Ieyasu Tokugawa in 1603. Because of this and the fact that the castle itself holds a great number of cultural assets, great funds and many years will be necessary to complete the project. Therefore, for this repair project we are collecting funds through our fundraising group: “The World Heritage Nijo-jo Castle – The Castle Owners’ Fundraising Group”. We thank each and every one of you for your deep understanding and warm support.

When each Tuesday of January, July, August and December, from December 26 to January 3 , Ninomaru Palace is closed.
