Updates of the construction of the Grand Egyptian Museum and the use of Japanese know-hows (from human resource development to restoration)





For our latest ZENMONDO video, we would like to introduce the scene of the construction of the Great Egyptian Museum featured on CNN. In this project, various Japanese know-hows such as Japanese construction fund support, protection and transportation method using Japanese traditional paper (Washi), and non-destructive inspection using advanced equipment are utilized. This collaboration between Japan and Egypt shows how both countries are working together as one.

Japan’s contribution realized the ancient dreams of the ancient Pharaoh era, which may help bring together the two countries even more. It is hard to experience foreign cultures due to the travel restriction caused by COVID-19, but we hope you can feel an essence of the Japan-Egypt relationship through these videos.
