Traditional Culture Section

Perceptions of the history of Japan in neighboring countries, and questions about the origins, accuracy and justice of these perceptions form the focus of this section’s research, since these are among the most fundamental issues facing Japan today. An interdisciplinary approach is adopted to tackle these matters, and attention is also paid to the manner in which history is taught in schools.
