Over 200 of artifacts from the National Palace Museum arrived in Japan yesterday for a three-month exhibition at the Tokyo National Museum.

The artifacts included many of the National Palace Museum’s most prized pieces, including the famous jade cabbage and meat-shaped stone.

The artifacts were driven under police escort to Taoyuan International Airport early yesterday morning, before being transported to the Japanese capital.

It is the first time the National Palace Museum has loaned many of the artifacts to overseas museums.

First lady Zhou Meiqing has been appointed the honorary head of a delegation heading to Japan to attend the June 23rd opening of the exhibition in Tokyo.
