"This journal is the oldest and most prestigious Japanese periodical devoted to the arts still published today. For more than a century, Kokka has been an authoritative author for the finesse of its analyzes and the quality of its documentary research, and continues to exert a notable influence on the classification of works of art by the State, and therefore on heritage policy. " (Christophe Marquet, Defense and illustraion of national art at the end of the 19th century: the creation of the Kokka review, 2005)

Created in October 1889, the review will be a worldwide success, from 1902 the summary will also be systematically translated into English. Our copies, only Japanese, were therefore published before this date.
