I am writing to let everyone know about a fully funded study program (lectures and field trips) for researchers (graduate or post-graduate) that is sponsored by Kogakkan University and Ise City in Japan. It will be held in and around Ise, which is home to the Ise Jingu shrine complex, and there are two days in Nara and Kyoto planned as well. The application deadline is November 30, 2016 (Wednesday). The program will be held from February 20, 2017 (Monday) to March 10, 2017 (Friday). Applicants can be based overseas or in Japan.

I think it is a great opportunity to learn more about Shinto, the region, its history, and Japanese culture in general. Please see the link below for details about eligibility, requirements, last year’s schedule, past participants, and so forth.

    • Thank you Philo for writing in and letting us know about your participation in the program. If possible, it would be wonderful to hear about what you are doing exactly and what the program consists of…

  2. I am trying to keep up a blog amidst the many lecures, https://philoinise.wordpress.com . Other participants are also writing about their impressions, the lectures and their views on shinto. I would recommend googling for their blogs ‘kogakkan study program 2017’, many contain interesting comments on shinto I believe.
