There are now a large number of resources created by universities, external organisations, and governments to support ‘research at a distance’ in and on Japan, before, during and after Covid-19. This page brings these resources together into a central hub for easy access. We would like to extend our special thanks to Dr Rebecca Corbett and Dr Paula Curtis who in addition to speaking at the webinar also provided a helpful list of resources and guides that are included in the pages below.

These resources will be updated each quarter of 2021. To submit an additional resource, please email the team at: japanresearchworkshop(at)gmail(dot)com




Archival Research

When sourcing archival materials and literature from overseas, we recommend the following services. Luckily, many of them have stepped up their activities during the Covid-19 lockdown, so we are likely to see updates during 2021.


Digital Ethnography

In addition, you can view Kaitlyn’s talk here on conducting Digital Ethnography in/of Japan from a distance, presented at our February 2021 Workshop.
