An exhibition of more than 20 blades by the Muramasa Sengo is running from now till October 16 at the Kuwana Museum in Mie Prefecture, Japan
 

Following are two links for this story, both with many pictures... but I noted that there were many more pictures and extra text in the Japanese version, which may be of interest

Chris, did you look at the photos in both links?

If you still want more, then maybe it's time to jump on a plane.

For anyone with an interest in the show, I have a few copies of the museum catalog on my site.
