Hello all!

Hope everyone is staying warm in this chilly weather. Just a notification that posts and email responses may slow down over the next three weeks, as I am participating in a three-week study program in Ise, Mie prefecture. Though responses may be slow, it will still be possible to contact the blog as usual via shinpai.deshou@gmail.com.

iconAdditionally, for those of you who were interested in the article I wrote on funding short-term research projects, I’m happy to announce that the start of the digital archive resulting from that project, which was on Edogoma 江戸独楽 (hand-carved wooden tops), can now be found at the following address:


If you’re interested in history or traditional Japanese art, do follow our work there in the following months as we add photos, audio, video, and the fascinating history of the people at the center of the project!

Stay warm, everybody! 🙂
