He notes that a museum dedicated to Chinese characters opened in Kyoto in June and attracted 1,000 daily visitors on average through the summer.

"Japanese people use Chinese characters every day, and thus have huge curiosity about them due to their abundant connotations and relevant interesting anecdotes. Nevertheless, the public's capacity for appraising characters on cultural relics is lacking," Atsuji says.

"It's rare to combine so many precious items together," says Wang from Art Exhibition China, "so we are also considering the possibility of holding the exhibition around China after it returns from Japan."
