Tomorrow's Pioneers

Viewing the Past through 'mokkan' [thin pieces of wood used to write on in ancient times] and Gardens
The theme of this issue of "Tomorrow's Pioneer's" is "Viewing." Areas of study expand through viewing. The pioneers of this issue are Associate Professor Hiroki ICHI and Associate Professor Koji KUWAKINO. Associate Professor ICHI conducts research in 'mokkan' of ancient Japan; Associate Professor KUWAKINO conducts research in Italian gardens of the early modern era. Together they command a broad perspective on history through direct research in people's life styles in the past.
