Alumni Directory

Welcome and Contact

Welcome to the Alumni Directory of Harvard University’s Program on U.S.-Japan Relations! If you are a former Associate or Postdoctoral Fellow and would like to update your entry information, please email us at

We would be happy to offer an introduction to program alumni for Harvard students and researchers whose studies would benefit from contacting them. In some cases we do not have updated email/phone, but we will try to help you reach the appropriate individual if they are available. Those interested should send a brief statement of interest to:

Directory Search Terms

"Year" in the Directory refers to the year in which a person graduated from the Program on U.S.-Japan Relations. This is especially useful for members of a cohort to find each other's entries. For example, those who were part of the Program in academic year September 1999 – May 2000 would be listed under the Year 2000. Those with multiple entries were members of multiple graduating cohorts.

Name, "Job Title", "Department or Division", and "Institution" entries are based on last-known information for each person.

Directory Controls

To search, please use the drop-down menus. There is a search box inside each drop-down menu, indicated by the magnifying glass symbol.

Once you have typed your desired search term, you may hover your cursor over the item that you would like to select. The word 'ONLY' should appear when the cursor is over your selection. Please click 'ONLY' to view only those entries fitting your search criteria, per the following example screenshot of a search for only those with the last name "Watanabe".

Use the check indicator in upper-left corner of each drop-down menu to either clear or select all items within a search category. You may also use the boxes to the left of each search item to select or unselect specific search items.
