With the establishment of the International Joint Digital Archiving Center for Japanese Art and Culture (ARC-iJAC) in 2019, the Art Research Center strives to push the internationalization of research activities that transcend disciplines and geographic boundaries.


Important Notice:
The ARC will be closed from Aug 11 to Aug 17 due to the Obon holiday break. Please note that we will not be able to respond to your inquiries or visits during this period. Thank you for your kind understanding in advance.
Recently, we welcomed Prof. Monte Cassim, the President of Akita International University (AIU), and Prof. Akitoshi Seiyama, the Director of AIU's Creative Design & Data Science Center, to the ARC.
Furthermore, we were delighted to meet Ms. Pei Liu, Senior Partnerships Manager at Nottingham Trent University, UK.
We created this video for the Comprehensive Digitization and Discoverability Program (CDDP) of the North American Coordinating Council on Japanese Library Resources (NCC).
Are you interested in using our Kuzushiji Transcription Support and Archiving System for your research or classes?
