About the ISJFC

  The Institute for the Study of Japanese Folk Culture (ISJFC) has pioneered organized research on Japanese folk culture and history. Since the foundation of its predecessor, Keizo Shibusawa’s “Attic Museum Society,” in 1921, the Institute has promoted a diverse range of activities, which gave particular emphasis to the collection of mingu (folk implements) and research in the history of fishing. It became a part of Kanagawa University in 1982 and has since been developing as a nexus for the interdisciplinary study of history and folk culture, providing practical training for postgraduate students as well as joint research opportunities for scholars from outside the university.
