Promotion of comprehensive and practical research on the Ainu

The passing down and promotion of Ainu culture and their traditions require the advancement of comprehensive and practical research in a variety of fields. It is also necessary to make efforts to publicize valuable research results that have not been announced thus far for economic or other reasons.

Ainu-related research

Subsidies are given for projects involving comprehensive and practical research on the Ainu, as well as for publication of research results, in order to promote research into Ainu society and culture.

  • Research subsidies: Research subsidies are granted for projects involving comprehensive and practical research on Ainu society and culture, from which excellent research results can be expected.
  • Publication subsidies: Publication subsidies are granted for publications on Ainu society and culture, which have not been published previously because they do not have commercial value or are evasive to researchers because they were published privately and exist only in limited numbers.
