Reports on Research Surveys by Year

September 16-23, 2013

The 6th Survey of the Siebold Collection at the State Museum of Ethnology in Munich

Conducted by National Museum of Japanese History (Hidaka, "Munich Team")

Location surveyed: State Museum of Ethnology in Munich (Munich, Germany)

Local contact: Dr. Bruno Richtsfeld (curator)

Participants: Kaori Hidaka (NMJH), Toru Katsuta (NMJH), Miki Sakuraba (NMJH), Yuki Hirata (NMJH), Hiroji Harada (Nagasaki Junshin Catholic University)

Shell-matching games, masks, musical instruments, metalwork, Nagasaki-related materials and books were fully surveyed and photographs were taken (by Katsuda). While the overall survey is nearly complete, some materials remain to be surveyed (mainly, materials that have not been clearly classified). Hence these un-surveyed materials were also located so that work to ultimately survey all materials can be undertaken.
