JAANUS Site Contributes to Japan Architectural Scholarship

  http://www.aisf.or.jp/~jaanus/

Last Updated: 9/21/2003

JAANUS is the on-line Dictionary of Japanese Architectural and Art Historical Terminology compiled by Dr. Mary Neighbour Parent. This site is an amazing resource for anyone interested in Japanese language terminology for art, gardens and architecture.

This dictionary contains approximately 8,000 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.
