Optional Inquiry:
1. Please describe briefly how the Japan Foundation Fellowship experience influenced your career.

Answer: First of all, it helped me to get to know people in my area, also where to go for certain research materials. In the long run, I was able to have a quite clear picture of history of Modern Japanese art , which was something you could not study at other countries at the time.

2. The Japan Foundation is planning to create a network or forum among past Japan Foundation fellows. Please let us know if you have any suggestions in terms of themes, format, etc.

Answer: In arts, Japan Foundation seems to organize conferences or panels in relationship to the exhibitions. These are valuable but tend to consist in art critics or curators. What about organizing more academic meeting especially since there are growing interest in Asian Art?
