History Begins With Writing

Learn how present-day writing systems came into being at the Ancient Orient Museum in Ikebukuro, where this informative exhibition looks at scripts from mainly Europe and Asia. Explaining the long journey of written characters from the Middle East both westward and towards the east along the Silk Road, it covers the multifarious influences that different cultures have had on writing systems over five millennia. You'll be able to see practical examples of more than 30 scripts, allowing for plenty of comparison.
