Geographical scope

The locations where research was conducted by the Shibusawa Foundation for Ethnological Studies (Minzokugaku Shinko Kai) and the Attic Museum.

Purpose

This is a joint research project based on materials passed on to the Institute from the Shibusawa Foundation for Ethnological Studies, along with the Attic Museum’s photographs and films. In particular, the project will conduct follow-up surveys and collect information associated with previous research. It will coordinate the effective use of the materials between the institutions possessing these materials of the same origin. Through these efforts we aim to establish a fresh view of the development of field science.
