Leiden-Volkenkunde.jpgAs part of our project to digital-archive overseas artworks, the Art Research Center (ARC) is pleased to announce that all of the digitized Japanese cultural materials in the collection of the Rijksmuseum Volkenkunde, Leiden (the Netherlands), including ukiyo-e prints, copperplate prints, and early Japanese books, have been released with the approval of the museum. This time, the published materials comprise mainly paper-based printed and painted materials.

https://www.arc.ritsumei.ac.jp/lib/vm/RV/

As is well-known, the Rijksmuseum Volkenkunde (National Museum of Ethnology), Leiden, is home to an extensive collection of Japanese artifacts comprising the collections of Philipp Franz Balthasar von Siebold, Jan Cock Blomhoff (Head of the Dutch East India Company in Dejima), and others. Since the Netherlands was the only country in Europe that traded with Japan during the Edo period, many Japanese collections have been accumulated there. Hence, many researchers of Japanese culture visit the museum to study its collection.

While the museum's collection is also available through the collection database of the Dutch Nationaal Museum van Wereldculturen, organized along with two other Dutch museums, the ARC's database now provides centralized access for the Japanese to the materials of Rijksmuseum Volkenkunde, Leiden. For each of the materials, there is a button to access the Nationaal Museum van Wereldculturen directly so that explanatory data in the original database can be viewed with a single click. At the same time, the materials can be accessed via the ARC's Portal Database, allowing you to compare them with those from other institutions.

We hope that you will find this information useful.

The Art Research Center (ARC), Ritsumeikan University, is delighted to announce the release of its PV, introducing the center's diverse international research activities in Japanese art and culture since its establishment in 1998.

Please enjoy the video and feel free to share it.

The 10th Forum for Knowledge, Arts, and Culture in Digital Humanities took place on Saturday, February 13, 2021, co-organized by the Kansai Division of the Japan Art Documentation Society and the Kansai Division of the Japan Society of Information and Knowledge in cooperation with the International Joint Digital Archiving Center for Japanese Art and Culture (ARC-iJAC), Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, the event was held online via Zoom. Participation was free of charge.

The Forum for Knowledge, Arts, and Culture in Digital Humanities was launched in 2011 as a platform for presentations and exchange mainly among postgraduate students and young researchers interested in the digital humanities research in arts, culture, and other related fields.

The event offered an opportunity for participants to discover new research themes and methods through human interaction in different fields, and we also welcomed exploratory and adventurous presentations that are slightly different from conventional conference presentations.

Facilitators (in alphabetical order): Ryo AKAMA (Ritsumeikan University), Naoki TAKUBO (Kindai University), Takehiko MURAKAWA (Wakayama University)

FY 2021 International Joint Research with Research Fund, ARC-iJAC

Deadline: Monday, February 1, 2021, 10AM (JST)

The group of 103 once-lost drawings by Hokusai that were rediscovered and acquired by the British Museum in 2019 is available in the ARC database, including metadata based on the ARC's further research.
An Interview with Professor Satoshi Tanaka (College of Information Science and Engineering, Ritsumeikan University)
Prof. Tanaka, a member of the ARC, discusses how 3D ultra-high-quality, see-through visualization models of large-scale cultural heritage are created in Japan and abroad using the latest 3D scanning technologies and how AI helps to reproduce what human eyes cannot see.
The 2nd exhibition in the Ako City Chushingura Ukiyo-e Digital Exhibition Room showcases a collection of works that depict Oboshi Yuranosuke (or Oishi Kuranosuke), the protagonist of the play Chushingura (忠臣蔵, The Treasury of Loyal Retainers).
The ARC has published the collection of Takeuchi Dokei, one of the re-presentative collections of the Kunitachi College of Music Library and a treasure trove of early modern Japanese music materials. >> Enter the exhibition
Watch the Video "An Evening of Noh and Kyogen"
In cooperation with the ARC, the Japan Foundation Kyoto Office released this video of its annual event for international students and others interested in Japan to experience traditional Japanese culture through the Noh and Kyogen performances.

Both productions are presented with an English synopsis.
Previously in private possession in the US and Europe, a set of damaged picture scrolls depicting the folk tale of Shuten-doji, a mythical demon leader thought to be residing in Mt. Oe, has returned to Japan for the first time in 130 years.
Entrusted with its restoration, the ARC started a crowdfunding project in 2019 successfully. As a gesture of gratitude, we offered a limited number of donors to visit the restoration site.
The ARC is thankful for the opportunity to revive this valuable cultural asset from the 17th century, and is looking forward to exhibiting these picture scrolls when the restoration is completed.

48tanaka.jpgProfessor Tanaka, thank you for your time today. Firstly, could you please tell us how you joined the Art Research Center at Ritsumeikan University?

Prof. Tanaka: In 2004, the College of Information Science and Engineering was founded at Ritsumeikan University. I was appointed to the Department of Information Science and Engineering in 2002 as a founding member.

Coincidently, the Art Research Center had been selected for the 21st Century Center of Excellence (COE) Program "Kyoto Art Entertainment Innovation Research" by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT) in the same year and so, the joint research started.

Can you please tell us more about your area of research?

funehoko.pngProf. Tanaka: I conduct research on the ultra-high-quality visualization and visual analysis of cultural heritage to digitally preserve valuable cultural properties in Japan and abroad.

By utilizing the latest 3D scanning technologies such as laser scanning and photogrammetry techniques, we can obtain large-scale point-cloud data of cultural assets.

We have proposed a novel method of see-through visualization applicable to point cloud data. This method enables us to visualize the complex inner and outer structures of tangible cultural heritage.
