Letters from Tokyo 

We're starting a monthly correspondence with Tokyo-based author, journalist, and scholar Roland Kelts! Please share your thoughts, insights, and questions by commenting on our blog. We'd love to hear about your own experiences in Japan! Read the August letter here!

The Japan Society of Boston Podcast

My Japan Journey, JSB’s very own podcast explores, through interviews, the untold stories behind the cultural encounters that have transformed our guest’s lives. 

In our latest episode, we interviewed

Dr. Maria Toyoda, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs at Western New England University. Maria's Japan journey began with her Japanese immigrant parents and their show business roots, but only began on a personal level with her studies in Political Science in graduate school.

Maria shares her unique perspective on Japan and Japan-US relations thanks to her extensive background in Political Science, Economics, and Higher Education Administration, as well as her experience growing up as part of one of the few Asian immigrant families in Miami, Florida.
