The Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Grant for “Japan Studies Based on International Collaboration” Project “Research and Evaluation of Japanese Buddhist Art in European Museums”
A joint project by Hosei University Institute for International Japanese Studies and the Institute of Asian and Oriental Studies – Japanese Studies of the University of Zurich
In October 2010, the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science awarded its grant for Japan Studies Based on International Collaboration to the project “Research and Evaluation of Japanese Buddhist Art in European Museums”, presented by Hosei University, Tokyo, in partnership with the Institute of East Asian Studies of the University of Zurich.
The project has been publishing numerous reports on collections in Europe. It is maintaining the database Japanese Buddhist Art in European Collections / 在欧博物館等保管日本仏教美術資料データベース
We conduct our research on the categories of sacral objects listed below. The main focus is on Buddhism, but we include wider resources of religiosity such as Shinto that can be found in Japanese culture:
