Issue 25 Winter 2019

Dear Friends,

There is much to look forward to this year. 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Sainsbury Institute. There will be a whole host of events in celebration of the two decades of research and dissemination of some of the best of Japanese arts and cultures in all their diversity.

This is also the 25th issue of our e-magazine. We are taking the opportunity to review what the e-magazine does, and we would be very grateful if you could take just a few minutes to give us a little feedback.
