Cultural Resources Studies, Associate Professor

My research theme lies in the history of books and bookbinding. Acquiring the techniques of European traditional bookbinding and insights for bookbinding conservation has enhanced my work on cultural history of books. There has been little research on European bookbinders and bookbinding in Japan. My research values books as cultural resources and memories to be passed on to future generations, shedding light on the history of bookbinding. In my Cultural Resources Studies class, students’ active participation and hands-on experience are encouraged as well.
My publications include “Shomotsu to Seihonjutsu” (Books and Bookbinding: Reliure—Cultural History of Bookbinding), Misuzu Shobo (UTokyoBiblioPlaza https://www.u-tokyo.ac.jp/biblioplaza/en/C_00070.html)
