In 1999 the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures (SISJAC) was founded by Lord and Lady Sainsbury with the aim ��To promote the study of the material and visual cultures of the Japanese archipelago, and in doing so act as a catalyst for international research in the field��. Linked to both the University of East Anglia and the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, SISJAC has one of the best libraries devoted to Japanese art studies in Europe. SISJAC also has its own study collections in the form of a large collection of Japanese and European maps of Japan on long term loan, with a view to donation, from Sir Hugh Cortazzi, a former ambassador to Japan who has already made a generous donation of over 1000 books to the SISJAC library. This collection includes several unique maps, the earliest dating from 1528, as well as some rare ceramics.
