Research topics
Urban development and evictions: in case of postwar Kyoto
This study will focus on the eviction problem that arose in the midst of postwar urban development in Kyoto. By shedding light on the situation of evicted people who deviated from the development process of post-war reconstruction and rapid economic growth, and the circumstances in which they were placed, I would like to attempt to reconsider post-war Japanese society.


I am very happy to have been selected for th Inamori Research Grant. I will work on this research project so that I can contribute to the clarification/elimination of discrimination, exclusion, and division in society.
