AJJ aims at providing a multilingual forum for anthropologists and other like-minded social scientists whose work focuses on Japan. Our hope is to serve as a focal point for those living in, working on and/or traveling to Japan, whose original research and work in progress can be shared in a small and intimate setting with those of similar background and interests.
