Kotenseki is defined as Japanese classic literature before the Meiji era. The team of NII and NIJL is developing a content-based image search system for kotenseki images. With computer vision techniques, we seek a way to evaluate kotenseki images quantitatively, and aim for new discoveries in Japanese literature.
