Cooperation with Museums promoting Japanese Culture
Based on our founding spirit, which aims to study Japanese culture, Kokugakuin University Museum mainly promotes research and education relating to National Learning and scholarship at Kokugakuin, the history of the Japanese archipelago through archeology, and Japanese culture and Shinto. Notably, following the decision for Japan to host the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, our museum based in Shibuya, at the forefront of modern Japan, will play an important role in spreading an understanding of Japanese and foreign cultures in this locality, and promoting Japanese history, religion and arts worldwide.
Against this backdrop, due to societal demand, in FY2014 Kokugakuin University Museum began its initiative to promote Japanese culture with cooperation from cultural organizations from different fields, thanks to the opportunities provided by support projects created by the Agency of Cultural Affairs (the Project for the Cooperation of Museums to Promote Japanese Culture from Shibuya, Tokyo, which was adopted in conjunction with the Project to Support Creative Activities at Art Museums and History Museums with the Local Community). It is our goal to establish Shibuya in Tokyo as a base from which to spread culture, by effectively promoting Japanese culture around the world through these projects, which use the many possibilities of art museums and history museums.
