I have been majoring in the socio-anthropology and focusing on the social situation in Asia. Recently, issues in the Japanese society become more complexed than before because the multilateral responses are required to work out a solution. As Japan enters into an aging society with a decline of birthrate, it is possible that people in Japan as well in neighboring areas will experience the impact of aging society in Japan. Thus, I think that it is important for us to consider issues under a change of social situations in Japan from an interdisciplinary viewpoint.
In addition, socio-anthropology faces a new challenge when we take technology into account. As a turning point of socio-anthropology where I feel a need for studies on technology, I did decide to participate in the Program for Leading Graduate School (PLGS). With mentors from a variety of companies and students with different fields of their studies, PLGS has been fostering me to encounter a new awareness. Whichever fields I stride on in the future, all experiences that I will gain in PLGS will become my own touchstone (Listen to others without criticizing others carelessly).
