Welcome to ASCJ

ASCJ is an interdisciplinary scholarly organization dedicated to the study of Asia. Since 1997, we have held an annual conference in Tokyo, one of the leading capitals of East Asia. The conference offers a stimulating environment for intellectual exchange on a wide range of topics and themes, and we welcome scholars from around the world to participate.

2023 Conference: Early Bird Registration is open until April 20. After that it will shift to the “Regular” rates.
Please proceed to our Registration page for more information and the link to the registration portal.

An updated version of the 2023 Program has been uploaded to the “Program” page under the “Conference” menu.

No Reception at the 2023 Conference 
As we move from pandemic to endemic, the rules about what is permitted on Japanese university campuses have been somewhat fluid.  Given this uncertainty, and the fact that this is our first face-to-face conference since the pandemic began, the ASCJ Executive Committee has decided not to hold a conference banquet for this year.  We hope all attendees will understand, and will avail themselves of the many excellent dining opportunities in the Yotsuya area.

If you have any questions or concerns, please send us a message via our Contact page.
