Answer: It gave me access to the Tokyo University Histpriographical Institute library and research staff, which supported me in linking Genroku era politics and economic history, I have since gone into a professional line of work, but the research I accomplished on the fellowship has allowed me to understand the roots of various ways that people relate as growing out of an approach to governance that has emerged in the last 3 centuries. Surprisingly, this is a rich field of interest among my professional circle of acquaintances.
