I am honoured to have been asked to join the editorial board of the Journal of Tourism History. My responsibilities include advising the editor and associate editor, refereeing submissions to the journal, and encouraging appropriate submissions relating particularly to tourism in Asia.
A monograph I co-authored with three colleagues, titled Contents Tourism in Japan: Pilgrimages to “Sacred Sites” of Popular Culture, has been published by Cambria Press. View the publisher’s website here. There is also a flyer produced by Cambria Press. It is now available to be ordered from the publisher and your local bookstore.
平成２８年度研究総長賞（奨励賞）を受賞しました。２年連続で受賞させていただいたことはとても名誉なことだと思っています。１月３１日の表彰式に出席する予定です。 I am honoured to have been awarded a Hokkaido University President’s Award for Outstanding Research for the second year in a row. The prize ceremony is on 31 January. Update (31 January): I was delighted that my main research partner on the contents tourism project, Professor Takayoshi Yamamura, also won a prize!
