Nihon Mingeikan Homepage, Japan Folk Crafts Museum, 日本民藝館

Located in Tokyo, the Mingeikan Museum is housed in a beautiful traditional Japanese building completed in 1936. Founded in the same year, the Mingeikan has over 17,000 items in its collection made by anonymous crafts people mainly from Japan, but also from China, Korea, England, Africa, and elsewhere.

Learning from Shogun

Learning from SHOGUN was distributed by the Japan Society of New York through the good offices of Peter Grilli, and two printings quickly sold out. The authors are pleased to make it available here in PDF format for interested readers and teachers, but please remember that this is copyrighted material and may not be reproduced for more than personal or instructional use. Note that the PDF version is bookmarked for easy access to the separate chapters. We also want to emphasize that Learning from SHOGUN is about Clavell's novel, not about either the TV miniseries or the feature film versions. A postscript to the book does offer my own first impressions of the miniseries, however, of which I was able to see a preview before it appeared on national television.

Matsu Gallery - Japanese Woodblock Prints

The gallery specialises in fine Japanese prints and paintings from the 1700's to the present day. Please feel free to browse through our stock of Prints and Paintings. We have included a section on Printmaking for those interested in the process, or for those less familiar with woodblock prints. There is also a section on Kabuki as historically, many prints draw on Japanese theatre and dance for their subject matter.

Yamato-e - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yamato-e (大和絵 [jamatoꜜe]) is a style of Japanese painting inspired by Tang Dynasty paintings and developed in the late Heian period. It is considered the classical Japanese style. From the Muromachi period (15th century), the term Yamato-e has been used to distinguish work from contemporary Chinese style paintings (kara-e), which were inspired by Sung and Yuan Dynasty Zen Buddhism paintings.

Samurai Archives Wiki

The Samurai Archives Wiki project is an attempt to create the most concise and detailed database of pre-20th century Japanese history on the internet. Although the SamuraiWiki is hosted on the Samurai Archives, this is a general resource intended for everyone interested in Japanese history. This wiki is in no way affiliated with Wikipedia.

The Samurai Archives Japanese History Page

Welcome to the Samurai Archives, an on-going effort to create an extensive database on the Internet for all interested in this fascinating piece of human history. This page deals with the military aspects of Old Japan, and as such devotes considerable space to the warriors themselves, along with descriptions of battles and various other 'militant' topics. Yet, given Japan's dynamic history, we could hardly confine ourselves to such a narrow view without diminishing the depth and sheer pagentry of our subject . The heart of the page will continue to be the warriors, but with every effort being made to round out our picture. We have and will continue to make every effort to make sure that the information we post is accurate - and will not hesitate to change any mistakes that come to our attention. Where possible, Japanese sources are used - and even these we endeavor to double-check. Nonetheless, inevitably mistakes will be made or reprinted - readers are heartily encouraged to let us know! Moreover, we would be delighted to answer any questions or just hear from fellow lovers of Japanese history. We do not view history or learning as something to be jealously guarded but rather as a gift to be shared with all who seek it.
