Dataset of Edo Cooking Recipes
Cooking books in the period of Edo, included in Dataset of Pre-Modern Japanese Text were curated to create recipe datasets through the process of transcription, translation to modern Japanese, and structuring into the recipe format.
As a by-product of transcription on Dataset of Pre-Modern Japanese Text (PMJT), shapes and coordinates of old Japanese characters (Kuzushiji) were compiled to create another dataset for training to make machines and humans smarter.
Adapted from Kuzushiji Dataset, KMNIST dataset is a drop-in replacement for MNIST dataset. We provide three types of datasets, namely Kuzushiji-MNIST、Kuzushiji-49、Kuzushiji-Kanji, for different purposes.
