Japanese Studies Survey

The Japan Foundation, since its establishment in 1972, has supported Japanese Studies all over the world and has implemented surveys on the state of Japanese Studies in many countries. In cooperation with University of Hawaii, surveys were conducted for North America in 1984, 1995, 2005, and most recently in 2016. The 2016 survey results, data, and information, only, are available online. We welcome all of our colleagues in the field of Japanese and Asian Studies to utilize this online resource.

The Survey of Japan Specialists and Japanese Studies Institutions in North America includes a list of Japanese Studies programs, courses, and institutions; specialists by name, field, location, historical period, etc.; non-academic institutions, such as libraries and museums; and doctoral candidates and recent Ph.D.’s.
