NBTHK Shinsa Fees

(as of September 1, 2015)

If an item is submitted for hozon and tokubetsu-hozon at the same time, the item is with passing hozon automatically forwarded to tokobetsu-hozon shinsa. When submitting for hozon and tokubetsu-hozon, the same fees as with separate submission apply when the item does not pass hozon or passes hozon and not tokubetsu-hozon. Only if the item passes both instances, i.e. hozon and tokubetsu-hozon shinsa, a reduction is granted.

This reduction is as follows: One saves ¥ 5,000 compared to submitting tôken and tôsô (koshirae) separately for hozon and tokubetsu-hozon (¥ 55,000 instead of ¥ 25,000 + ¥ 35,000) and ¥ 3,000 compared to submitting tôsôgu separately for hozon and tokubetsu-hozon (¥ 44,000 instead of ¥ 17,000 + ¥ 30,000).

Reissuing of Papers

The following basic requirements must be observed:

  1. Only damaged or stained papers (hozon, tokubetsu-hozon, jûyô, tokubetsu-jûyo) are reissued. Lost papers are generally not reissued. In the latter case, the item has to be newly submitted again (exception see below).
  2. Both existing paper and item have to be authentic.
  3. For assessment of point 2, both, i.e. existing paper and item, have to be sent to the NBTHK Tokyo. With this submission, the owner agrees to our conditions of custody and to the condition that the NBTHK can not make binding statements on the duration of the entire process of reissuing.

tôsôgu 15,000 Yen
