Aims and overview

The research activities of the ISJFC include various studies and research projects based on local surveys and fieldwork.
 At present, the institute is overseeing three types of project: “A. Core Joint Research Project,” “B. Basic Joint Research Projects” and “C.

The institute analyzes them from a unique perspective. The institute also shares the results of its research through catalogs, collections of documents, and collections of essays. Moreover, in order to deepen exchanges with researchers in each region, it also carries out research groups according to each theme.
