The Gion Festival in Kyoto, designated as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO, is one of the most important Japanese festivals.
A highlight of the festival is the magnificent parade of decorated floats known as the Yamahoko Junkō.
Amongst these, the Taka-yama float boasts a long history of participating in the parade that dates back to the 15th century.
However, the float has been absent from the festival since 1826, when a great storm damaged its decorations. The situation was further worsened by a fire that destroyed most parts of the float in 1864.
In recent years, there has been a movement to revive the Taka-yama float - a long-cherished wish of the townspeople.
Finally, the Taka-yama float is due to return to the Gion Festival in July 2022 for the first time in 200 years.
Besides reporting on the progress of its reconstruction and showcasing its return in a virtual Yamohoko parade, this event also intends to expand the circle of Takayama supporters and raise the momentum for its long-anticipated return to the Gion Festival.
*The event will be held in Japanese.

The symposium was jointly organized by the School of Humanities, Tsinghua University, China, and the International Joint Digital Archiving Center for Japanese Art and Culture (ARC-iJAC), Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University, supported by the Program for Asia-Japan Research Development Research on Creation and Development of Asian Arts Studies, Ritsumeikan University.
In his opening remarks, Professor Yoshio Nakatani--Chancellor of the Ritsumeikan Trust--stressed that the symposium was an excellent opportunity to promote research, academic exchange, and friendship with Tsinghua University and Chinese scholars.
Furthermore, Professor Yuping Ni--Associate Dean of the School of Humanities, Tsinghua University--expressed his hope to deepen the partnership and comprehensive cooperation between both universities, emphasizing the significance of humanities, besides natural sciences, in times of crisis and complex challenges such as the global pandemic.
During the symposium, research teams of both universities presented their perspectives and research activities in digital humanities.
Professor Takaaki Kaneko introduced the ARC Model of Digital Archiving, the center's representative databases, and how its online research environment facilitates born-digital style research.
He also explained powerful tools developed by the ARC to aid digital humanities research, such as the educational transcription system with an AI-enabled deciphering support function for the Japanese cursive script known as kuzushiji.
Furthermore, Professor Keiji Yano introduced the construction of a WebGIS-based portal database of maps and a system to compare Rakuchū rakugai-zu byobu--folding screen paintings of scenes in and around Kyoto--with maps of the present and the past.
Concluding the symposium, Professor Koichi Hosoi--Director of the Art Research Center--expressed his anticipation for the birth of new international joint research styles on diverse topics fueled by digital technology as both universities join efforts in digital humanities research.
Many people from Tsinghua University, Ritsumeikan University, and other universities and research institutions attended the symposium and engaged in lively discussions.
"I am very impressed that so many people are studying Japanese culture through databases and digital archives," commented Chancellor Nakatani on attending the symposium and expressed his anticipation for many new research findings to emerge from these archives.
Professor Takahiro Nishibayashi, who led the planning and organization of the symposium, expressed his gratitude to all the speakers, participants, and staff involved. "Taking the humanities as a starting point, I strongly hope that research exchange between both universities will be further deepened and involve other fields such as digital humanities," said Professor Nishibayashi.
The second joint academic symposium marked a meaningful occasion to reinforce the collaboration between both universities while highlighting the advance in humanities research on both sides with the progress in digital technology.
We look forward to further strengthening our partnership with Tsinghua University by expanding the scope of our research exchange to other research fields in the future.

The Annual Conference of the Japan Art Documentation Society (JADS), hosted by the Japan Art Documentation Society (JADS) in cooperation with the MEXT International Joint Usage / Research Center International Joint Digital Archiving Center for Japanese Art and Culture (ARC-iJAC), Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University, took place on June 27 (Sat) and 28 (Sun), 2020.
To prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the event was held online for the first time this year and more than 130 members and non-members of the JADS participated.
As part of this year's annual conference, a symposium on 「芸術文化資源デジタル・アーカイブの国際的共同利用 -- オンライン環境での知的生産システムとそのツール」 (The International Joint Usage of Digital Archives for Arts and Cultural Resources -- Intelligent Production Systems and their Tools in an Online Environment) was held.
The symposium began with a welcome speech by Prof. Koichi Hosoi, Director of the Art Research Center (ARC), who introduced the international research activities of the ARC-iJAC in the field of digital humanities.
Following his opening remarks, three presenters proposed activities and tools for the next generation of digital research environments in light of the role of digital archives until now which only had a focus on reference information. In this context, they discussed ways and future directions to construct an online knowledge cycle for arts and cultural resources.
Among these three speakers, Mitsuhiro Tsuda, a researcher at the Art Research Center, publicly presented the concept and utilization of the ARC Research Space and ARC Database for the first time and explained their role in effectively building relationships between digital resources and intellectual activities.
In supporting the activities of the Japan Art Documentation Society (JADS), the ARC-iJAC aims to contribute to the establishment of such an online knowledge cycle which may enable researchers, curators and librarians not only to "browse" information, but also archive the "relationships" between these resources and produce new knowledge by "editing" and "re-archiving" them in the future.［イベント情報］June 27, 2020(Sat)
