Institute of Oriental Culture (IOC), Tokyo
The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.

“The mission of the Institute of Oriental Culture is to conduct
research on Asia through a synthesis of our broad expertise in the
humanities and social sciences. The region covered by our studies
extends from East Asia to the Middle East, which we consider
naturally to include Egypt and North Africa. Unlike studies bound by
government and political issues, ours do not have specific
jurisdictional borders determined by a map. We study the world with a
focus on Asia.”
