Asia and Japan Module

Mission & Vision of Modules

  • Our mission is to examine “Japan as Asia” and “Asia-Japan Relations” from an international perspective on various aspects of economy, culture, art, and history. Taking either the “temporal axis approach” to clarify the historical transition and present of “Asia as seen from Japan” and “Japan as seen from Asia” or the “spatial axis approach” to clarify the interdependence and “integration” among Asian countries including Japan, synthesizing various disciplines and knowledge in the fields of humanities and social sciences such as history, humanities, education, arts, urban studies, and economics, our cluster challenges the universal theme of “Asia and Japan” with future-oriented mindset.
