Borders of Memory

The Japan Forum Special Issue that grew out of the Borders of Memory conference in December 2016 if finally about to see the light of day.

It consists of four excellent articles on the Maizuru Repatriation Museum, Miike (one of the 23 Meiji Industrial Sites recognized in 2015), Ainu remains and the new Ainu Museum at Shiraoi (scheduled to open in April 2020), and the Okinawa Peace Park.

Many thanks to all of the authors, Jonathan Bull, Atsuko Hashimoto, Steve Iving, Yusuke Matsuura, Naohiro Nakamura & David Telfer. Further details at: https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rjfo20/31/3?nav=tocList

If you want a copy of the (lengthy) introduction by yours truly, drop me a line.

Countdown to the opening of the new Ainu museum at Shiraoi, located at the entrance of the Akarenga building. Now a tourist attraction, the former Hokkaido government office was a key symbol of Japanese modernity in Hokkaido.
