Welcome to Research on Tōhoku

This site is devoted to my studies on the lifeways of the northern six prefectures on Japan’s main island of Honshu–the region known as Tōhoku.  I have included a list of my publications that focus entirely or in part on the region, as well as many photographs that I have taken while spending time there over the past 30 years.  Tōhoku is one of my favorite places on earth, a place that I enjoy not only for the warmth of its people and its natural beauty, but also for its high-tech industries and its fascinating history.  Please browse and enjoy the site and let me know if you find it interesting–or even if you don’t.
