Research

Proceeding the ongoing project of “SOAS Library’s collection of the English language works on Japan―Focusing on the books about the Law or Religion in the Edo period―”. By this title, I published an article in The SOKA Law Review. The SOAS library also possesses this catalogue.

Comparative study of Japanese temples in the Edo Period and English Church in the Tudor period. I gave a talk on this issue with the title, “The Relation between Sacredness and Secularity from Religious and Legal Viewpoints―Focusing on the Buddhist Temples in the Edo Period and the Anglican Church in the Tudor Age―” on February 11, 2010 at the Centre for the Study of Japanese Religions of SOAS. An article based on this talk was published in Bulletin of the Institute of Oriental Philosophy. The SOAS library also has this article.
