    Interaction between the Western world and Japan
  • Current Research Themes
    I am currently doing research on the documents of the Dutch Factory in Hirado in the possession of the National Archives of the Netherlands. These documents offer a wealth of information on Japan’s foreign relations in the early Edo period. I am preparing Japanese translations of these materials in order to make them available to researchers in related disciplines.
