Printing Museum, Tokyo
Join us in February for a visit to the fascinating Printing Museum, Tokyo.
The Printing Museum, Tokyo was established in 2000 in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. In 2002, the museum was presented an exhibition award from the Japan Society for Exhibition Studies.
The museum collects and studies material related to the culture of printing, experiments with letterpress and other printing methods, and leads various educational activities. In the library, you will find materials on not only printing machines and technology, but also on the history, cultural background, unique terms, and other aspects related to the world of printing.
Four key concepts – feel, find, understand, and create – are implemented throughout the museum to helpfully communicate the past, present and future of printing to visitors.
