The Chester Beatty Library celebrates the return of the mid-seventeenth century Tawara Toda scrolls to Dublin following an extensive three-year restoration of them which was undertaken in the Netherlands.

The Tawara Toda scrolls tell stories of warriors, giant centipedes, daring deeds and romance, offering an engaging insight into Japanese storytelling traditions.

The restored scrolls are some of the most prized possession of the Chester Beatty's incredible collection of historical Eastern art and artefacts and the make for a great reason to visit this wonderful resource.
