100-Year Old Japan, as Seen Through The Lens of Arnold Genthe. Photos of the shopping streets offer the most details to observe and marvel over Arnold Genthe (1869 – 1942) was a German-born photographer who emigrated to San Francisco at the age of 26 and made a name for himself photographing Chinatown, but also the city’s wealthy socialites.

100-Year Old Japan, as Seen Through The Lens of Arnold Genthe

In 1908 Genthe followed his passion and interest in ukiyo-e prints, sparked by a chance meeting with Japanese art scholar Ernest Fenellosa, and traveled to Japan where he spent 6 months touring and photographing the country. The images, part of a larger collection, were later acquired by the Library of Congress, where they remain preserved, offering a rare and authentic view of what Japan looked like almost 100 years ago. However, photographing Japan the way Genthe did was not easy. Heian Period Japan: waraji and zori sandals. - BACK to the Daruma Museum - .

Tanuki - Japanese Trickster & Spook, Originally Evil, Now Icon of Generosity & Prosperity.

The original evil parts come from old China and its fox lore (introduced to Japan between the 4th-7th centuries CE). The newer tamer parts, such as the big belly, belly drumming, giant scrotum, and sake bottle can be traced to late Edo-era Japan (18th-19th centuries), while the commercialized benevolent parts (promissory note, straw hat) emerged in Japanese artwork around the beginning of the 20th century.

Komusō. A Buddhist monk begging as a komusō Sketch of a komusō (right) The komusō (虚無僧, komusō? , hiragana: こむそう; also romanized komusou or komuso) were a group of Japanese mendicant monks of the Fuke school of Zen Buddhism who flourished during the Edo period of 1600-1868.[1] Komusō were characterized by a straw bascinet (a sedge or reed hood named a tengai or tengui) worn on the head, manifesting the absence of specific ego.[2] They were also known for playing solo pieces on the shakuhachi (a type of Japanese bamboo flute).

These pieces, called honkyoku ("original pieces"), were played during a meditative practice called suizen, for alms, as a method of attaining enlightenment, and as a healing modality[citation needed]. The Japanese government introduced reforms after the Edo period, abolishing the Fuke sect. History[edit] 36. 鷹繪圖 Takaezu. Japan, 1328-1709 Falconry is first documented in the Nihon shoki (Japan’s official chronicle, compiled in 720), where it is said to have been introduced by a Korean courtier in 359 A.D. Falconry appears in many literary works, beginning with the Manyoshu poetry anthology of the 8th century, and was practiced by the ruling elites until the end of the 19th century.

Emperors, nobles and members of the Samurai class retained falconers; ceremonial and technical aspects of falconry were developed. Several families established their own schools of falconry around the 14th century, and the teachings of those schools were transmitted through generations. Black robe, white mist. France-Japon.

That's an expression one hears all the time and is also evident from anime and manga, where likable characters have round eyes and the baddies have narrow eyes. But when did this positive view of round eyes start? If we look at premodern Japan, we find round eyes in depictions of devils (oni), goblins (tengu), Deva kings (niô), hannya-demons, animals such as tigers and lions, and warriors in battle. Round eyes seem to have been regarded as something terrifying and perhaps related to the supernatural. Le Japon IRL.

The Institute for Research in Humanities was established in January 1949 by merging the Institute of Humanistic Studies (人文科学研究所; established in 1939), the Institute of Oriental Studies (東方文化研究所) and the Institute of Occidental Studies (西洋文化研究所). While following on from the achievements of these three organizations, the new Institute is promoting comprehensive studies of diverse cultures and societies in the world.

Institute of Oriental Studies The Institute of Oriental Studies, the oldest of the three organizations, was established in 1929 for Sinological studies under the name of Kyoto Institute, the Academy of Oriental Culture. The Academy had two institutes, one in Tokyo and the other in Kyoto, both founded through subsidies from the Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Shortly after the opening of the Kyoto Institute, it was staffed by only four researchers and four assistants, working in a space rented from Kyoto University’s Faculty of Letters.

Nendo réinvente les baguettes japonaises. Antique Japanese Dolls - Art in Focus - Sosaku Ningyo. For the past several years, in these UFDC seminars, we have been exploring the fascinating, frustrating and ultimately seductive world of the Japanese Friendship Dolls of 1927. We have examined their history, the reasons behind their creation and the politics of the day. We have explored some of the individual journeys of the Doll Ambassadors as they came from Japan and toured far and wide in the United States before settling into more permanent homes in museums, libraries, historical societies and various cultural institutions.

We have tried to disentangle the interlaced ambiguities of identities—who’s who. And we have, perhaps most importantly, also explored their artistry, their beauty, and have touched upon the extraordinary individual artists and ateliers that created these marvelous dolls. [Fig. 1a, 1b] This year, I would like to take a step forward and look at the legacy created by this important doll-centered movement. Maiko in Time/Life Magazine, Sept. 11 1964.
