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

Answer: The Japan Foundation Fellowship 1996 influenced my career immensely and I am forever grateful. Although I was awarded a 9-month fellowship, I was able to take only 3 (summer) months, because my university offered me, just then, a full-time position that was most important in the long run. During my tenure as a Japan Foundation Fellow I met many GENJI scholars and was invited to publish the article written in Kyoto in GENJI KENKYŪ. Thank you very much

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: I would be most interested in a forum on the Heian Period, focussing on material culture (architecture, art, religious monuments etc.) as reflected in Heian literature and the fine arts.
