Organized by IMJS: Japanese Cultural Heritage Initiatives, Columbia University

Supported by Tides Foundation, Toshiba International Foundation, Medieval Japanese Studies Foundation, Sumitomo Corporation of Americas Foundation, Ajinomoto Co., Inc.

This year 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the international, interdisciplinary IMJS: Japanese Cultural Heritage Initiatives, an Institute housed at Columbia University in New York City. Since 1968 the Institute has pioneered the creation of ongoing and transformatory institutions.

The Institute, known internationally for its impact in a wide range of Japan-related fields, rediscovered in Ireland, the UK, France, Germany, the USA and elsewhere hundreds of glorious hand-illuminated and calligraphed Japanese medieval books and hand scrolls lost to Japan in hard times and in the 1970s-80s its unprecedented collaborative research and publication projects raised to global consciousness the importance and power of this huge genre of illuminated Japanese medieval books and scrolls. In the 1990s-2000s, the Institute brought to first light the history and lives of imperial abbesses and their jewel-like Buddhist nunneries still active around Japan. Most recently has now institutionalized at Columbia the one (and still only) program for credit that trains student instrumental ensembles under world-class mentors to perform the repertoires of the glorious court and secular music both classical and modern pieces for Japanese heritage instruments, which were almost swept away by the force of Meiji-period policy which caused an inundation of European instrumental music. New young generations in Japan and worldwide are now engaged in a renaissance of this glorious Japanese heritage instrumental music.
