The Tokyo Metropolitan Buried Cultural Properties Center performs excavation surveys to protect buried cultural properties, discloses historical materials that are discovered in such surveys, and strives to preserve and utilize such finds. For these purposes, the center conducts a wide variety of businesses including exhibits and explanations based around archeological artifacts, lectures, experience workshops, field trips to excavation sites, etc.
In addition to appropriately preserving buried cultural properties and taking the necessary measures for their utilization, we record and maintain buried cultural properties by assembling the results of such measures into reports.
We display buried cultural properties unearthed by excavation surveys in exhibits, hold lectures, lend and gather materials, and conduct experience workshops, field trips to excavation sites, and on-site briefings. By utilizing buried cultural properties in such a way, we aim to arouse interest in buried cultural properties among Tokyo residents, deepen their knowledge and understanding, and contribute to cultural advancement.
