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

Answer: The Japan Foundation allowed me to come to Japan to conduct a year of in-depth fieldwork on military music in historical perspective and contemporary Japan. Through the Japan foundation, I have become a research student at Tokyo Geijutsu Daigaku, giving me guidance from excellent musicologists, library access and support, and a forum for sharing my research through seminar presentations. This has also been an important networking opportunity-I met many scholars of Japanese studies at the Japan Foundation Get Together last spring.

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: Perhaps a short newsletter (e-mailed would be fine) telling of fellows' current activities and related announcements in Japanese Studies would be helpful.
