Abstract

Egyptology in Japan is relatively unknown to the rest of the world, although recently more Japanese scholars have been involved with a range of Egyptological projects, including archaeological excavations, conservation, philological studies and cooperation in the construction of the Grand Egyptian Museum. This paper aims present an overview of Japanese Egyptology from its beginning to the present, and look to its future. The article is divided into three parts: history of scholarship; history of archaeological fieldworks in Egypt; and Egyptian collections in Japan.
