Every year in autumn, The Japan Foundation Kyoto Office organizes an event called "An Evening of Noh and Kyogen" to give people an opportunity to experience traditional Japanese culture, inviting international students, Japan Foundation Fellows, and those enrolled at the Japanese-Language Institute, Kansai to join in this event.

This year, however, the outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in travel restrictions, making it difficult for students and scholars of Japanese Studies abroad to come to Japan.

To minimize the risk of virus transmission, the Japan Foundation Kyoto Office will take a new approach to this year's event in cooperation with the Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University, by filming the productions without an audience and releasing the video to the public free of charge for one year from December 24, 2020, at 14:00.

The program

"An Evening of Noh and Kyogen"

Noh: Kanze School Noh actor KATAYAMA Kuroemon in "Shari (The Bones of Buddha)"

Kyogen: Okura School Kyogen actor SHIGEYAMA Sengoro in "Shimizu (A Servant for Better Working Conditions)"

*Both productions will be presented with English synopsis.

The Noh performance "Ikkaku Sennin" by the Katayama Family Foundation for the Preservation of Noh and Traditional Kyoto Dance is available online as part of the Agency for Cultural Affairs' program to provide cultural and art experiences for school children across Japan. Based on the agreement with the Foundation, the ARC provided technical support in making the video.

The fans of Noh and children who watch Noh for the first time can both enjoy the performance as the video is made child-friendly with the explanations of the story and the scenes shown with furigana (reading aid which indicates kanji pronunciation).

The Art Research Center mourns the loss of Roger Keyes, a highly respected scholar and major contributor to the field of ukiyo-e prints.

Mr. Keyes, together with the late Peter Morse, compiled a catalogue raisonné of the single-sheet color woodblock prints of Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) between 1972 and 2007.

While the hard copy of the catalogue was donated to the Japanese Section, Department of Asia, at the British Museum, the digital archive of the catalogue raisonné was constructed by the Art Research Center.

Furthermore, the ARC has not only digitized but also holds some of his other original research notes.

In memoriam of Roger Keyes, the Japanese Art Society of America has published an interview of Roger Keyes (read the interview here) that was conducted by Timothy Clark, retired Head of the Japanese Section, Asia Department, at the British Museum.

We have become indebted to Mr. Keyes and would like to express our deepest gratitude to him.

The 78th International ARC Seminar took place on Wednesday, December 2. This year, the seminars have been held online to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.

For those who were unable to attend the 78th International ARC Seminar, we have made the video available online until the end of January 2021.

The program was as follows:

"Tsuda Seifu's beginnings as a Kyoto design artist" (in English)

Speaker: Prof. Scott JOHNSON (Emeritus Professor, Kansai University)


[On copyright of Tsuda Seifu's artworks]

In his Kyoto years, Tsuda Seifu's woodblock printed art was the product of publishers who owned the blocks, and therefore controlled publication rights. The artist was paid at the time of original publication, and his rights were then taken over by the publishers. This was the "hanmoto" tradition, carrying on from the Edo period. I would like to thank the Unkindo/Unsodo publisher descendants, who graciously allowed me to use images of Tsuda's artworks for this YouTube video. (Scott Johnson)

The Art Research Center (ARC) is pleased to announce that a special video of Mio no Kai (澪の会), which could not take place on December 7, 2020, has been released and will be available online.

Background

Kyomai refers to the Kyoto style of the Japanese traditional dance expressed by the Inoue school that is based in the geisha district of Gion, Kyoto. The Inoue style is the only dance form studied by the geiko (geisha) and maiko (apprentice geisha) in the center of Gion district, and it incorporates influences from the traditional Japanese noh dramas as well as joruri puppet theater performances.

With a history extending back to the Edo period (1603 to 1868), the Inoue style of kyomai has been passed from generation to generation by a succession of female dance artists. The current headmaster of the Inoue school is Yachiyo Inoue V, designated as a Living National Treasure by the Japanese government.

Mio no Kai (澪の会)

Mio no Kai (澪の会) was started as a study session by Yachiyo Inoue V in 1981 using the rehearsal hall in Shinmonzen, Kyoto.

As it is a rare and sophisticated dance performance by the headmaster of the Inoue school, Yachiyo Inoue V, this event has been widely known across Japan, attracting both the citizens of Kyoto as well as many people from the Kanto area.

Mio no Kai (澪の会) is usually held four times a year (April, June, September, and December). However, due to the impact of COVID-19, it has not taken place this year.

Therefore, we are even more pleased to share this video of Mio no Kai (澪の会) online for the people who were looking forward to the event and to provide an opportunity for a broader audience outside of Japan to watch the kyomai dance.

While the performance is usually held on a relatively small scale in the rehearsal hall in Kyoto with an audience limited to around 70 people, please take this unique opportunity to watch the performance from home.

The ARC's Involvement

Based on the agreement with the Katayama Family Foundation for the Preservation of Noh and Traditional Kyoto Dance, the Art Research Center has been in charge of the production (recording and editing) and distribution of this video.

Furthermore, master's students of Digital Humanities for Arts and Cultures, the Graduate School of Letters, Ritsumeikan University, have participated in this video production.

We sincerely hope that you will enjoy this video and spread the word to your friends and family.
