About the Department of Japanese Language and Culture
In order for us Japanese to live together with people from various countries in the fast-approaching globalized world, it is necessary to first recognize the excellence and special nature of our own Japanese culture and to then refine our own values.
This department presents a vision of ‘Japan in a world perspective’, and aims at proceeding with revisionist research on Japanese language and culture. Fundamentally, study involves the creation of original literary art, and training in Japanese language and written expression. This, an understanding of Japanese language and culture, is learnt at the same time as gaining a command of multimedia apparatus. Furthermore, in order for students to come into direct contact with Japanese culture, emphasis is placed upon fieldwork.
