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

Answer: It gave me a very important opportunity to conduct field research and produce publications, which contributed to my academic career. It also helped me establish contacts with policymakers in Japan, which I maintained for many years afterwards.

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: A web-based discussion forum would be great, which would allow former fellows to post opinions, notices, and invite comments from others. The discussion could include topics related to academic research and teaching or current events as they unfold. The forum could also be used to post announcements about conferences, seminars, research projects, and other academic opportunities of potential interest to the former fellows.
