Research Interests:

I am a political scientist researching social and regional inequalities in Japan, the political economy of rural revitalization, the Japanese welfare regime, decentralization, and local governance. My first monograph entitled “Harvesting State Support” (University of Toronto Press, 2021) analyzed institutional change and local agency in Japan’s agriculture. My current research projects focus on changing state-society relations and “revitalization” in rural Japan, and on the missing link between rural decline and electoral discontent in Japan.
