For both Japanese and non-Japanese researchers, it is important to understand the meaning of texts as accurately as possible. If you really encounter an ambiguous word, you need to explore all relevant examples in order to gain a deeper understanding of it meaning and use in the Edo period. The Hokusai project has started regular study meetings to translate the prefaces of Hokusai books in collaboration with colleagues from Ritsumeikan University.
