Three lecturers; Prof. Jun Kubota, a professor emeritus of the University of Tokyo, Mr. Atsushi Nishiyama, director of the curatorial division of Nara National Museum, and Prof. Karl Friday, director of the IES Abroad Tokyo Center; gave lectures on Yoritomo from each point of view. More than 200 people attended and listened earnestly to the lectures.
