Hello everyone,

I am getting conflicting reports as to the exact number of swords that are deemed to be National Treasures and Cultural Properties of Japan. Can anyone give me the correct number and a hopefully a verified link to the list of swords that are currently protected by the Ministry of Japan (ie. cannot leave the country)?

Thank you!
Pablo

Hi Pablo,

As for National Treasures, I believe that there are 110 blades and 12 koshirae. However, this does not include swords in the imperial collection.

Best
