The spotlight falls on Chuo University, as Fumi Karahashi and her student Naoki Aiba tell us about Assyriology in Japan.
“The Tama campus (home to the Faculty of Letters, the Law School, etc.) is situated to the west of downtown Tokyo, in a place where one can see mountain ranges, including Mt. Fuji, on clear days. I like the environment very much: the air is fresh and the trees green!” – Fumi Karahashi
“I became especially interested in Assyria because I wondered why Assyria, which had existed more than 2,000 years, collapsed soon after unifying the ancient Near East.” – Naoki Aiba
