Over two thousand years ago, Qin Shi Huang, China’s first emperor (through self-appointment) created a remarkable army that remained protected, hidden away until excavation in the 1970s revealed the Terracotta Warriors. Since then, people all around have clamored to see even a fraction of the army, which has resulted in triumphant museum ticket sales and crushing crowds gathering at the exhibits. This unceasing demand has finally brought the warriors to Tokyo for a limited time. Recently discovered artifacts, including pottery, military implements, household items, murals, bronze chariots, and a number of the warriors will be present. Skip the flight to China and stop by the museum for a sample of the full-scale display for a fraction of the price – there’s a photo corner where you can get your picture taken with the warriors and make your own memories immortal, too.
