Japanese History

We are one of the few institutions in the world that focuses on premodern as well as modern Japan, covering religious, ideological, social and political changes over the long term. This wide span of the past is connected by our common interests in historical naaratives. From reconstructions of the warrior class to memories of the Asia-Pacific War, these narratives play an integral part in present day Japan.
