Kogakkan University (located in Ise City, Mie Prefecture) will be hosting an eighth year of the “Ise and Japan Study Program.” The program is open to graduate (Master or PhD) or post-graduate researchers (including faculty) who are interested in learning more about Japanese language, history, and culture with a focus on the Ise-Shima region and the Shinto religious tradition.
The application period begins November 8, 2021 and ends December 20, 2021. The program will be held from February 21, 2022 to March 11, 2022. Because of the pandemic and associated travel uncertainties, applicants must be based in Japan (see the application materials for details).
