The Nagae family were merchants of the kimono fabric. Their family residence, which was rebuilt and renovated after a big fire in 1864, served both as a working and living space for many generations.

The ARC has been digital-archiving the collection belonging to the Nagae Family Residence after Ritsumeikan University received it as a donation. Subsequently, the ARC has become involved in planning and managing the Byobu Matsuri held annually at the residence.

Based on an industry-academia collaboration with Hoosiers Corporation, with which Ritsumeikan University concluded a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in May 2015, this activity is to preserve and utilize the Nagae Family Residence for the development and promotion of education and research.

The Art Research Center (ARC) co-organized the special exhibition Kimono no Mushiboshi (「着物の虫干し展」) at the Nagae Family Residence, a tangible cultural property designated by Kyoto City, on March 20 and 21, 2021.

Due to COVID-19, this was the first time since the byobu matsuri (folding screen festival) in summer 2019 that the residence was open again to the public, and it welcomed a total of 50 visitors.

About the Event

image.jpg

The Nagae family were merchants of the kimono fabric, and their family residence served as both a working and living space for many generations.

During this exhibition at the residence, kimonos from the family collection were taken from the storehouse and air-dried--a traditional Japanese practice called mushiboshi--to prevent the clothes from insects and mold.

DSC06129.jpg

These kimonos were worn by the seventh generation of the Nagae family during the early Shōwa period. The head of the seventh generation was very fond of the Gion Festival, participating in the festival's preservation society and as a musician for the Gion bayashi (orchestral music accompanying the festival). He wore the summer haori on display to attend various events of the Gion Festival.

Furthermore, tools, goods, and trading documents were exhibited, providing a glimpse into the daily life and business of a merchant family in the rakuchu (in the capital) of that time.

DSC06142.jpg

The items from the family collection displayed at this event were made available to the public for the first time after they had remained in the storehouse for a long time.

In a separate room, visitors could learn about the ARC's research outcomes in digital-archiving the Nagae family collection.

About the Nagae Family Residence

DSC06168.jpg

Designated as a tangible cultural property by the City of Kyoto, the Nagae Family Residence was built between the late Edo period and the Taishō period and is located in the center of Kyoto.

The main building is a two-story traditional wooden townhouse--also referred to as kyo-machiya--which consists of a north wing constructed in 1868 (closed to the public) and a south wing constructed in 1905.

Although some parts of the building have been restored in recent years, most parts of the residence, including the glass windows, remain the same as built more than a century ago.

DSC06139.jpg

With the office space at the front and private rooms at the back, including one for ceremonial occasions, each room had a clearly defined function.

Furthermore, a family business trademark is found throughout the residence that differs from the kamon (family crest) printed on their kimonos for the Gion Festival.

About the ARC's Research

DSC06157.jpg

The ARC has been involved in the research on the Nagae Family Residence for many years. After receiving a donation of their collection, including hanging scrolls, folding screens, kimonos, and daily life tools, we have been researching and digital-archiving those items.

DSC06148.jpg

In recent years, some kimonos and design pattern books have been discovered in the storehouse, revealing new aspects of the Nagae family's business as kimono fabric merchants. We also introduced these new findings at this exhibition.

In the future, the ARC strives to continue to research and digital-archive the remaining items in the storehouse to enrich the Nagae family collection database and preserve Japanese cultural heritage.

A special exhibition "KIMONO: Fashion Identities", which the Art Research Center (ARC) has contributed to, is now open at the Tokyo National Museum.

This exhibition traces the kimono, one of Japan's most iconic symbols, from its inception some eight hundred years ago to its role today as a symbol of Japanese culture and is the largest kimono exhibition in the history of the museum.

eik3-1-04.jpg"Karuta asobi zu", a painting from the ARC's Fujii Eikan Bunko Collection, is exhibited during the first half of the exhibition (June 30 - July 26). This is a great opportunity to see the painting in real life. ("Karuta asobi zu" in the ARC Database: https://www.dh-jac.net/db1/resource/eik3-1-04/eikan/

Moreover, Natsuko Takasu, one of the ARC's Visiting Collaborative Researchers, has contributed to the exhibition. Her contribution includes writing a column in the exhibition catalog, creating the Taisho-Meiji era style kimono coordinates and coordinating overseas collectors' kimono, and providing some decorative items for display. The coordinated kimono styles, matched with accessories such as han-eri, obi, and obi-dome, make up a beautiful art form.
