Regarding international exchange in the culture of fine arts, we have held Japanese Art Program at Leiden University (the oldest faculty of Japanese studies in Europe was founded in 1855) in the Netherlands from 2005, and have sent artists as lectures. We held the Program that covered history, theory and practice side comprehensively in some fields of Japanese art in Leiden University to promote understanding of Japanese art in foreign countries. This project brings about great success and will hold the 7th lecture "Japanese woodblock printmaking (mokuhanga) " in autumn this year.
