In this paper, a new image query system by impression words named the IQI system has been proposed. The proposed IQI system has been implemented on Sun SS-5 workstation. Since the human sensitivity and various images are flexibly connected using a neural network in the IQI system, it can automatically estimate impression words from various kinds of images. As a result, the IQI system can reflect human's kansei (impression and sensitivity) effectively and treat wider variety of images. We show some experimental results. The IQI system can estimate correct impression words and successfully retrieve correct images.
