Cultural Anthropology, Japanese Folklore, Latin America History

Research Topic

My specialty is cultural anthropology in which field is in South America and Japan. The former is the historical and ethnological research of native lowlanders of Bolivia and Peru. My research especially focuses on Guarani society which has a relation with missionary history of Society of Jesus from 16th century. This theme is connected to the former history of cultural anthropology which was established in Europe and is one of the biggest themes of the history of cultural anthropology.
