Centre for the Study of Japanese Religions


The SOAS Centre for the study of Japanese religions was founded in 1999 by a generous donation from the International Shinto Foundation.

The centre exists to promote the academic study of Japanese religions past and present in all their rich diversity and dynamism.

To this end, the centre hosts a regular seminar series and a post-graduate discussion group, the Japanese Religions Forum, as well as international workshops and conferences.

The centre also welcomes applications from outstanding students of Japanese religion for its postgraduate bursaries.
