About

The Japanese Studies program at The Chinese University of Hong Kong refers to the academic study of Japan from historical, cultural, and linguistic perspectives, and includes both humanities and social sciences. 

Overview

Japanese Studies program at The Chinese University of Hong Kong has emerged through multiple traditions including Japanese scholars studying their own society, European scholarship on Japan following contact in the Edo Period, and the rise of Area Studies in the United States following the end of World War II. 

Area Studies emerged from the realization that conventional academic disciplines failed to adequately address particular geographic or cultural areas, leading to gaps in knowledge of our world. Japanese Studies allows students to acquire comprehensive knowledge of Japan grounded in multiple academic disciplines and language training.

 Japanese studies are important to Hong Kong and China because of the great economic, cultural and historical inter-relationships between Hong Kong, China, and Japan.
