Subscribed by the library for special dictionaries for Japanese history such as Rekishi chimei daijiten, Nihon rekishi chimei taikei, Koji ruien, etc. There are also Japanese dictionaries such as Nihon kokugo daijiten and Shinsei kan-Wa jiten, encyclopedia of Japan and more.
This dictionary contains approximately 8000 terms related to traditional Japanese architecture and gardens, painting, sculpture and art-historical iconography from approximately the 1st century A.D. to the end of the Edo period (1868). Terms from related fields such as lacquer, ceramics, textiles and metalwork have been included where they are considered to be of general interest and/or impact on the principal fields of architecture, painting and sculpture.
These definitions are not translations from any one Japanese monolingual dictionary, but have been collated from a range of specialist sources and scholarly publications, and from direct observation and study. Many have never before been defined in English.
