My study field is Japanese film history.


My research theme is film history in the Taisho era. I am researching about showing of the films featuring Onoe Matsunosuke. As a member of Kyoto Culture Group in the GCOE Program, I am participating in the project to construct an online search system for movie programs in the Taisho era. I am also planning to add more information about film showing and other theatrical programs from the Kyoto Hinode Shinbun into the database.
