This study aims to present a new point of view and issues to contribute to future studies of Japanese culture, by discussing the process of the formation of folklore studies in modern Japan, focusing on the formation of the study by Dr.ORIKUCHI Shinobu. In order to achieve the aim, we are planning the following research activities this fiscal year :

In the n
inth and tenth meetings, two investigators presented their research papers, and in the eleventh meeting, a presentation by an investigator and discussion on the perspective of the study were made. Each meeting was open to the public and attended by 30 to 40 participants including researchers and graduate students both inside and outside of the university. These meetings promoted the accumulation of the study. Especially "Marebito" Thesis by Dr.Ogawa, head investigator, reexamination of "Sorei" Thesis and review of "Suderu" Ideas, which is seen mainly in the Ryukyu islands, by Dr.Tabata, investigator, presented new points of view.
(2)We made a bibliographic database of the academic magazines, "Minzokugaku", "Minzokugeijyutu","Minzoku","Minzoku to Rekisi".Dr.ORIKUCHI took part in editing. It advanced the understanding of the situation of the study at the time when Dr.ORIKUCHI formed the culture theory. We digitalized such materials as sketches he drew when he visited Okinawa for research in 1921 and 1923, including the ones not published in the "ORIKUCHI Shinobu Zenshu", "Shisha no Sho" he did bookbinding, his illustrations in ‘Zoku Shisha no Sho' and his sketches during a research trip to Iki in 1921 to make them open to the public.
