Abstract

In the course of “Theory of Urban Development”at Kyoto Seika University (second semester,13;
2007), the first lecture was given on the history of Kyoto and its changes. On this basis I then13;
assigned the students to sample a color item typical of Kyoto and make the report on it. To13;
accomplish their tasks, they required both fieldwork and the use of reference materials. Even for13;
students without any experience of writing reports,the topic was interesting,and I provided a model13;
for them and explained how they should make investigations.13;
After giving similar assignments for the past some years, I published three papers in the KSU13;
Journal based on statistical analyses of the reports submitted:“The Image of Kyoto Seika University:13;
Utilizing the Techniques of Kevin Lynch’s The Image of the City”(No.25), “Kitsch Design in13;
Kyoto: The Establishment of Architectural Kitsch”(No.27), “Stories in Which Kyoto Plays a13;
Leading Role: Looking for Kyoto in Literature”(No.29), and “A Taste of Kyoto: Experiencing13;
Kyoto’s Culture through Its Food”(No.32). Before the fifth group carried out their assignment I13;
showed them the published papers,which included the names of students from whose reports I cited,13;
and nearly all the students voluntarily submitted their own reports.13;
In choosing the present topic, I aimed to have the students sample Kyoto’s color culture for13;
themselves, become aware of the long history behind its flavors, and come in contact with traditions13;
unique to Kyoto. Of the 154 reports received,almost half discussed a landscape(the natural greens,13;
the stores and houses,the historical architectures),but most of the topics have something to do with13;
Kimono, lacquered Japanese ware, Kyoto ceramics, etc. The study confirmed the continuity of13;
cultural traditions unique to Kyoto with the presence of many unique local colors. Because it is13;
extracted it from the passage of time,Kyoto’s cuisine is closely attuned to the changing seasons,and13;
Kyoto has made a lot of period flavor colors which rise beyond the times. In conclusion, I suggest13;
that, as residents of Kyoto, by making it part of our everyday life to follow the custom of enjoying13;
a particular treat at a particular time while appreciating the changing of the seasons, we can help13;
preserve the heritage of these unique colors for the future.13;
Key Words: colorscape, urban design, image color of Kyoto
