The Ashmolean is the University of Oxford’s Museum of Art and Archaeology. It opened in 1683 and is the oldest public museum in the UK.

The Shikanai Galleries on the second floor of the Museum provide a permanent space to present aspects of the collection, and regular displays and exhibitions such as the Tokyo:Art and Photography exhibition in 2021 also play an important role in presenting Japanese art in the UK.
