Japanese Society and Culture

Aims & Scope

The Japanese society has been developing steadily since the Meiji Restoration that took place at the end of the 19th century. Japanese culture and customs are evidently distinct, and since the Restoration, a large body of knowledge about this cultural distinctness has been developed in Japanese academia. This growing body of knowledge includes valuable ideas, precedents, and experiences. The Japanese language, however, has remained inaccessible to academics from other parts of the world. Japanese Society and Culture, therefore, aims to disseminate the knowledge and research produced in and about Japan in the English language.
