Course summary – books and Japanese culture

Summary of the course

Thank you very much for joining us for the past three weeks. Please watch the video for a brief wrap-up by professors Sasaki and Ichinohe from the quiet comfort of a traditional Japanese style room.

As introduced in the video, Keio University offers a related course “Sino-Japanese Interactions Through Rare Books” on FutureLearn. You’ll enjoy learning how Japanese culture has been influenced from Chinese culture by looking into rare books in Japan written in Chinese text. Please join us if you have not taken it yet!

If you enjoyed this course, you may also be interested to know that we newly offer a course on “The Art of Washi Paper in Japanese Rare Books”. This course focuses on the history, production and design of papers used inside Japanese rare books. The course starts from 13 Jan 2020.
