In order to deepen research on Japanese culture and broaden its scope by bringing together researchers from different fields of specialization, the International Research Center for Japanese Studies (Nichibunken) supports the "team research" (kyōdō kenkyū) approach to opening up new frontiers in Japanese studies scholarship as well as individual applicants those who would like to do a short-term research in Japan as "Visiting Research Scholar Fellowship 2017-2018."
Nichibunken seeks visiting research scholars to plan and organize one-year team research projects for the Japanese academic year 2018 (April)－2019 (March) and those who can reside at the Center for individual research projects in 2017-2018. Research themes of outstanding significance and future potential will be favorably considered.
