This exhibition showcases the designscape of contemporary Japan through 100 objects of Japanese de­sign: 89 objects created since 2010 that are well known in Japan, as well as 11 objects that represent the origin of Japanese post-war modern product design.

Since 2004, the previous version of this exhibition has traveled around the world fascinating viewers in many countries, including Egypt, India, and Russia. The Japan Founda­tion has updated and reorganized the entire exhibition to reflect the most innovative and well-made objects in the world created by Japanese de­signers over the past 10 years.
