Japan-InsightNew Window

    One TIFO-initiated program that we are particularly proud of is Japan-Insights, which is here: http://www.japan-insights.jp/window

    Japan-Insights encourage people from around the world to see beyond the Japan of Tokyo and the major tourist spots. Essays written by some of the world’s leading experts in Japanese studies invite visitors to really engage with and discover a different Japan, to immerse themselves in diverse experiences, and to find a Japan that can awe and enchant with its diverse history and a culture that entwines the old and the new to create something unique.
