November, 2015 Japanese Mahjongg Museum and all envolved parties have executed an agreement that its huge collection of mahjongg sets will be returned to China and stored and displayed properly in the City of Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China. It may take a very long time and careful monitoring to secure honest operation between two countries.

July, 2013 Japanese Museum Returns Mahjongg Sets To China
The world's largest mahjong museum near Tokyo has decided to return to China a huge collection of mahjongg sets, including one used by the last Chinese emperor, Puyi, the World Mahjong Organisation (WMO) said online.
The cultural relics will be transferred to Beijing, where the organisation is headquartered, from the museum in Japan's Chiba prefecture. Besides Puyi's set, which China considers a national treasure, the batch also includes mahjongg pieces made of jade, silver or bone, as well as those that once belonged to famous historical figures such as the late Peking opera star Mei Lanfang (梅蘭芳) and famed 20th century ink painter Zhang Daqian (張大千).
"They are all of very high cultural value, and it is difficult to say which piece is worth more money," WMO said. "We're still considering how to deal with them."
The return of the mahjong items was an unfulfilled wish of the late former board chairman of a publishing company (竹書房) that owns the museum. As the museum's entire collection will be transferred to Beijing, the WMO will establish an institution in the museum's place to promote mahjongg, according to an agreement reached between the museum and the WMO.
The decision by Chiba's mahjong museum - the biggest and oldest of its kind in the world - will strengthen co-operation between the two countries in the study and heritage of the mahjongg culture, the WMO said.
"This decision will also help boost the mahjongg culture in a healthy and scientific way," it said. "It is an important push for cross-cultural communications, as well as for the sustainable development of competitive intelligence-oriented activities, expos, leisure tourism and mahjongg equipment."
It was also reported that the museum previously intended to hold an auction in Beijing, with an opening bid of about 20 million USD for more than 30,000 items, but the auction was cancelled for unknown reasons.
Established in 2005, the WMO is a non-profit organization dedicated to training and competition involving the Chinese game. It was set up by mahjong organizations in China, Japan, the US, Germany, France, Denmark, the Netherlands and Hungary.
