Research Interests:

I research religious ideas in modern East Asia with a focus on Buddhism in Japan.   My project embraces how religious knowledge turned into the humanistic one in early twentieth-century Japan.   For this purpose, I have looked for the establishment of Buddhist Studies in secular universities and the scholarly publications by researcher-clerics in Buddhism.
