Japan-InsightNew Window

    As part of TIFO-initiated programs, Toshiba International Foundation has now launched a new project, “Japan-Insights”. (http://www.japan-insights.jp/別ウィンドウで表示)

    As the Tokyo Olympics/Paralympics 2020 draws closer, Japan-Insights encourages people around the world not just to visit Japan, but to really engage with and discover the country through immersive experiences; to find the real Japan. This is made possible by the generosity of spirit of some of the world’s leading experts, scholars, and professors in Japanese studies. Through essays that explore and showcase their expertise, they share with readers the excitement of delving deeply into Japan and understanding its distinctive appeal.
