The State of Baltic Studies in Japan

Sonoko Shima (Showa Women’s University)

The purpose of this presentation is to describe Japanese research on Baltic Studies since the 1980’s.  Although my native country, Japan, is located very far away from the Baltics, there do exist some researchers who specialize on studies of this area. The main aim of my presentation is to examine the academic characteristics of their research.  The focus will be on the current development of Baltic studies in Japan.
