NBTHK Shinsa Fees

(as of September 1st 2015)

Is an item 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).
