  • The Spirit of Budo Exhibit at the National Museum of Fine Arts
  • The traveling exhibition telling the history of the Japanese martial arts launched last night at the National Museum. With a karate demonstration to welcome us, we were all set for The Spirit of Budo Exhibit at the National Museum of Fine Arts.

    The international traveling exhibit showcased martial arts gear, the helmets, the weapons. Before it was a sport, martial arts in Japan was mainly learned for combat and the many wars that Japan has faced.

    The armor is heavy as well as decorative, showing both power and strength. The choice of weapons also varies from intricately designed katanas and longbows. Prints of many artworks depicting the samurai were exhibited alongside the articles.
