Tokyo National Research Institute for Cultural Properties
As one of the only two national research institutes for cultural properties in Japan, TOBUNKEN issues an annual compendium on Japanese art including data on exhibition and publications in this area.
As their research partner, SISJAC has been invited to establish and run an English data base on exhibitions which have been shown outside Japan and publications of articles and books in English. This data base forms part of TOBUNKEN’s website, and it can be accessed through our SISJAC’s own website. Furthermore, since 2015, every year in February, an academic from TOBUNKEN is invited to give a talk at our Third Thursday Lecture.
