An exhibition of ancient Chinese treasures from Taiwan's National Palace Museum scheduled to open in Tokyo on Tuesday will go ahead as planned after Tokyo corrected posters and other promotional materials omitting the word "national" in reference to the museum.

A spokesman from the Taiwanese museum, Chin Shih-hsien, told Kyodo News over the telephone that the Director Feng Ming-chu and the museum delegation left for Japan on Monday morning to attend the opening ceremony scheduled for the afternoon on the same day. The exhibit will open to the public from Tuesday

"The Tokyo National Museum owes the (Taiwanese) people an apology," the museum said in a statement.
