    Abstract:
    In-situ research findings and cross-cultural observations largely written by the author in Japanese (see additional information). Contents: ancient and classical history of Sanuki Province (now Kagawa Prefecture), where Kukai and his nephew Enchin were born, inspiration for the Pilgrimage of Shikoku; Buddhist syncretism with several Asian religions, perceiving a mountain range in the Heian Period as a mandala that practitioners could enter; a Kyoto University newspaper article on understanding cultural differences; the Japanese as unique individuals; forming an international sister school relationship; a Japanese speech contest script on foreigners living like Japanese; communication and community; and cultural liberation.
    Notes:
    Having specialized in Japan, the author was intent on reaching the public directly in Japanese, through live TV, radio, public lectures, bilingual haiku, books and other publications, newspaper articles and interviews. Particularly from 1985 when he became a college faculty member in Kagawa Prefecture, he wrote the newspaper articles in this file in Japanese, with native speaker help in some cases. Photos from that period fill the empty spaces.
