Education Background

His Bachelor of Arts degree from Tokyo Gakugei University in Japan was focused on liberal arts, with a specialization in art history and political sociological theory. In his studies of art history, he gained knowledge of both Japanese and Western art as they relate to the history of international relations and technological innovations. For his graduation project, he focused on paintings of German and British Romanticism, which included works by John Flaxman, Ph. O. Runge, William Blake, and others.

The novelty of his project lay in its reference to works of “die Kopenhagener Schule” (1), which are not yet well understood in Japan. This movement had a massive influence across northern Europe in the 19th century, and perhaps even on British and American pop culture in the 20th century by some chance. Although he originally envisioned this project while studying as an exchange student at the Universität Hamburg, he has yet to be fully convinced of its success. Additionally, he explored the influence of Dutch landscape paintings and pan-European amateur color science, especially Prussian, on Japanese “ukiyoe” through “rangaku” as an ambitious sub-theme.

In the field of political sociological theory, he studied subjects such as Jürgen Habermas’s communication theory and Theodor W. Adorno’s writings on aesthetics, although they were considered minor subjects. These political or aesthetic thinkers were part of the old Frankfurt School and contrasted with the Hamburg School in art history, which included art historians like Erwin Panofsky and Fritz Saxl. Of course, he was quite excited about Ernst Cassirer’s epistemological works, as these theoretical matters were but just as a hobby.

He has earned a professional certificate from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. As part of his studies, he completed joint professional courses in sustainable design engineering in collaboration with Leiden University, Yale University, the Research Institutes of Sweden, and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. The courses were supported by the European Commission.

At the present, he is pursuing the master’s program in international security studies at the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) in Geneva, in collaboration with the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya. In addition, he is enrolled in a graduate course at the University of Tokyo, as research place in Japan.
