The exhibition Terracotta Warriors and Ancient China – Heritage from the Qin and Han Dynasty opened on Friday at Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art in Japan, marking the first overseas Terracotta Warriors exhibition since the outbreak of COVID-19.

As a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the normalization of China-Japan diplomatic relations, it was hosted by the Shaanxi Cultural Heritage Administration and Kyoto Shimbun, and jointly organized by the Shaanxi History Museum, Emperor Qinshihuang’s Mausoleum Site Museum and various cultural institutions in Japan.

The exhibition displays 121 sets of cultural relics from cultural institutions and museums in Shaanxi and Hunan provinces. The Terracotta Warriors and Horses, stone artifacts, bronzewares and other exhibits on display span from the Western Zhou Dynasty (c.11th century-771 BC) to the Eastern Han Dynasty (AD 25-220).

The exhibition will run for one year. After its end on May 22 in Kyoto, the exhibition will travel to Shizuoka, Nagoya and Tokyo in subsequent months.
