Nishi-no-Shosoin

"Tastes of JAPAN by ANA" is a regional vitalization project that collaborates with the different prefectures in Japan to present the Land of the Rising Sun in all of its diverse glory.

Nishi-no-Shosoin, in the Nango District, is a faithful reproduction of Nara's Shosoin treasure house, built with 400-to-500-year-old Japan hinoki cypress trees. Its construction was based on the original drawings of Shosoin, whose removal from Shosoin's premises has always been forbidden. This was made possible with the cooperation of the Imperial Household Agency, the scientific assistance of the Nara National Research Institute for Cultural Properties, and the special permission of the Construction Minister at the time.

Nishi-no-Shosoin and Kudara House, filled with ancient history and the romance of ancient mysteries.
