  • Specialized Field(s)
    Japanese medieval history
  • Current Research Themes
    Examining the images of the ikki as recounted in tales of the medieval and early modern period (war tales and tales of uprisings etc.), I trace historical changes in the images and compare them to facts known from historical research. This research is aimed at clarifying the relations between the facts and fictions of the ikki. I also actively incorporate the results of research in the field of Japanese literature.
