Welcome address Rome 2007


Welcome to the 18th conference of our European Association of Japanese Resource Specialists, hosted by the Istituto Giapponese di Cultura of the Japan Foundation in Rome. The conference has no restricted overall theme, but wants to deal with all matters that concern resource specialists and researchers, in the first place and traditionally those using primary resources, but in point of fact any person doing scholarly work in a Japan related field has a lot to learn at our conference.
