Due to Typhoon Hagibis, Kawasaki City Museum sustained significant flood damage in October 2019 when its valuable art property including fine artworks, paintings, cartoons, and films stored in the Museum’s repository were severely damaged. With support from the Japanese government and experts, we have removed them from the repository, and now are applying emergency care and restoration efforts such as cleaning them of any dirt or debris.

Thankfully, after learning of our situation, many individuals/organizations inside and outside of Kawasaki city have contacted us with donation offers and inquiries.

In our explanation below, we hope to answer on how you can make your contribution to help the restoration of the Kawasaki City Museum art collection. The funds we receive from you will be used with utmost care for the restoration of the artworks, so please see below for details on how to make a donation.
