●Calligraphy Research Institute

In 1969, the predecessor of the Calligraphy Culture Center was opened under Professor Sugisame Aoyama. In 1988, it was reorganized and the current Calligraphy Research Institute was born. Since then, we have been working to improve calligraphy education at universities through calligraphy research, and have been developing affiliated projects aimed at popularizing calligraphy and calligraphy education for society at large.
