Welcome to the Tokyo Humanities Project!
This site aims to promote the study of the humanities in the Tokyo-Yokohama area (home to over 30 million people and to hundreds of universities, libraries, and museums).
In addition, our
s, blogs, and "Quick Questions" series provide new ways to connect researchers and artists within Japan and present their ideas to the world.
