On Thursday, April 4, 2024, CJS Director Mark Levin and former CJS Director Robert Huey joined Dr. Pier Carlo Tommasi and his JPN 613 students for a special field trip to the Honolulu Museum of Art.

Attendees had a chance to visit the Shining Prince: The Tale of Genji exhibition, open from December 21, 2023 – April 7, 2024, and see a variety of artifacts on display from the Richard Lane collection. Lane (1926–2002) was an American scholar, author, collector, and dealer of Japanese art.

Special thanks to HoMA, Research Associate Kiyoe Minami, and Asian Art Curator Shawn Eichman for the tours!
