The second conference was held at Keio University, Tokyo, in September 1997.
It was organized by a committee of nine Japanese historians
with the active cooperation of Professor O'Brien.
Eight distinguished British historians# presented papers,
each was matched with a short paper and a comment by
Japanese colleagues, before discussion was opened to the floor.
On Saturday, the fourth day of the conference,
we divided into five workshops on specific themes.
Not only British and Japanese but also
Korean, Chinese, American, Australian and Irish
historians participated in the fruitful discussions.
The conference ended in a great success as the first did.
