Familiarize yourselves with the Research Center for Japanese Culture Structural Studies:
This book describes the entire Japanese Spirituality as the foundation of haiku culture.
” Japan Code ” is our structural philosophy of Japanese spiritual culture, for the first time in the world, integrating
all Japanese cultures such as Shinto, Buddhism, literature, architecture, painting and so on.
The Japanese version of the original book is stored as historic material in “Kyoto Institute, Library and Archives” and world-famous shrines and temples, etc.
This book was published with the world’s collaborators in commemoration of the 170th anniversary of the birth of
Lafcadio Hearn (June 27, 1850 – Sept. 26, 1904), who translated haiku in earnest and introduced it to the West for the first time in the world.
This book puts forth a Japanese culture theory about haiku, etc. which cites Lafcadio’s books and analyzes his insight by our Japan Code.
It includes about 50 haiku using old Japanese words about Japanese mythology, and spiritual culture, and also explains the history from Japanese mythology to haiku.
