Our CJS Spring e-Newsletter is out now! In this issue we bring you a full roster of events, both online and in-person, to fill your summer days. Following last year’s success, we will be hosting our second Online Summer Programme in Japanese Studies in the run-up to the Tokyo Olympics. Our colleague Dr Christopher Hayes has written a piece on how he expects the Olympics to finally turn out following months of speculation. Several events will also be held over the summer, including exhibits at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual arts such as our exhibition Faces of Faith: Religious Statuary in Early Japan and a special guest exhibition by Leiko Ikemura. Finally, we have several updates from our CJS colleagues to share with you.
We always welcome feedback and are very happy to pass on Japan-related news of relevance to our readership – so do get in touch and let us know what you think.
Stay safe and well,
Simon and Oliver
