I am a cultural historian and professor in the Department of Cross-Cultural Studies at Kanagawa University in Yokohama, Japan.

My research focuses on gender and sexuality in modern and contemporary Japan. I am particularly interested in the role of transnational cultural flows—and the actors who have engendered those flows—in the construction of Japanese genders and sexualities.Please visit my Academia.edu profile at the link below for details about my research interests, including a list of some of my publications.
