  • Overview

    Course Description
    This once-a-week, back-to-back course is designed for you to explore and understand Japanese folklore that is well-known to the Japanese, but that is so ordinary that people do not talk about it; hence, students of Japanese language and culture cannot easily understand it. Through lectures, DVDs, fieldwork, and other hands-on experiences, you will be able to know Japanese folklore that you should know in order to deepen your knowledge on Japanese language and culture.
