On September 6, 2022, the Mainichi Shimbun featured an article on the Kyoto News Archive, a digital archiving project led by Professor Keiji Yano (College of Letters, Ritsumeikan University), Deputy Director of the Art Research Center (ARC).

In collaboration with the Toy Film Museum in Kyoto, Prof. Yano and his team have been building a digital archive of Kyoto News--a series of newsreels produced by Kyoto City between 1956 and 1994 (Showa 31 - Heisei 6).

During that period, the newsreels were shown in movie theaters in Kyoto before the start of the main film. As one of the earliest regional newsreels, they are a valuable historical testimony of Kyoto City. They have recorded a wide range of topics in the city, including seasonal customs and festivals.

Based on the research cooperation agreement of the Art Research Center (ARC), Ritsumeikan University, with Nara Prefecture, a digital archiving project on Taimadera Temple in Katsuragi, Nara, has been conducted by the ARC faculty member Prof. Tanaka (College of Information Science and Engineering, RU) and his team for the purpose of preserving cultural heritages.

On August 21, 2022, Prof. Tanaka presented the research outcomes of his project on the ultra-high-quality see-through 3D visualization Taimadera Temple--a national treasure-- at a roundtable event at the Nara Prefecture Historical and Artistic Culture Complex that was held as part of the special exhibition 'Researching Cultural Heritages' (「文化財研究中!―なら歴史芸術文化村×連携4大学―」). 3D measurements of the entire Taimadera Temple precincts, mainly the Kondou Hall and the West Pagoda, have been taken, with the number of laser-scanned point cloud data exceeding several billion points.

Furthermore, Prof. Tanaka introduced the ARC-iJAC international joint research project on the digital archiving of the Borobudur Temple Compounds in Indonesia--a UNESCO World Heritage Site--to the audience. This project has been conducted in cooperation with the Research Center for Area Studies, National Research and Innovation Agency (PRW-BRIN), Indonesia (previously: Research Center for Area Studies, Indonesian Institute of Sciences (P2W-LIPI)).

Research outcomes of the ARC, as well as those of three other universities researching various cultural heritages in Nara, are showcased as part of the special exhibition held at the Nara Prefecture Historical and Artistic Culture Complex between July 23 and September 19, 2022.

DAJ_Award_1.jpgOn August 25, 2022, the Art Research Center (ARC), Ritsumeikan University, received the Digital Archive Japan Award (DAJ).

daj_award_cert_arc.jpg

The Digital Archive Japan Award (DAJ) is an award system newly established by Japan Search, a national platform operated by the National Diet Library, Japan, for aggregating metadata of digital resources of various fields, including Book/Publication, Official Documents, and Humanities and Art.

The DAJ Award has been designed to widely introduce to society the initiatives that integrate digital archives into daily life, such as the promotion of digitization, open content, and the provision of new services using digital technology to create momentum for their utilization. The ARC is honored to be the first recipient of this award.

The award ceremony was held at the Digital Archive Fest 2022 (「デジタルアーカイブフェス2022」)--hosted by the National Diet Library and the Cabinet Office--where industry, academia, and government officials gathered to discuss cutting-edge case studies and commended good practices for promoting digital archiving in Japan.

The ARC received this award for its role as an international link for Japanese art and culture by publishing online databases--including ukiyo-e, early Japanese books, and banzuke-related contents--while collaborating with various domestic and international institutions and individuals to enhance the discoverability of such contents and presenting a model in this field of the art and culture. Furthermore, the ARC was recognized for its efforts in developing metadata and providing access to pages containing terms and conditions of use for each institution.

8_1.pngIn his acceptance speech, Professor Ryo Akama, Director of the Art Research Center (ARC), expressed that, for a quarter of a century since its establishment in 1998, the center has been taking digital archives as the foundation for the research activities. On the day, Associate Professor Takaaki Kaneko delivered the award acceptance speech in Prof. Akama's place.

He highlighted that the center has been accumulating a vast amount of contents while mainly targeting overseas museums. "Although we have not been quite as well-known domestically, the excellent mechanisms of Japan Search have allowed us to clearly position ourselves as an international link", said Professor Akama.

He expressed his intention to take the Digital Archive Japan Award (DAJ) as an opportunity to provide information on domestic cultural resources and areas other than ukiyo-e, early Japanese books, and banzuke-related contents to further respond to the needs of users worldwide.

As part of the FY 2022 ARC-iJAC project of the Shochiku Otani Library and based on an agreement between the library and the Art Research Center (ARC), the digitized programs have been integrated into the Shochiku Otani Library's Shibai Banzuke Browsing System (松竹大谷図書館所蔵・芝居番付検索閲覧システム), developed and made available to the public by the ARC.

Background

nagae_outer.png

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.
