Seasoned SASE Japan scholar and SASE/Kyoto Program Co-Director Sébastien Lechevalier has put together a great list of things to do in Kyoto which we share with you ahead of the conference. Some of these places are exquisite!

Besides his hard work for SASE, Sébastien is Associate Professor at Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS, Paris). His research interests are inequalities, institutional change, and industrial economics, with a particular focus on Japan – which has led to him being appointed president of the Fondation France-Japon de l’EHESS (an organization that, among other things, provides travel grants to SASE authors in Network Q: Asian Capitalisms and to SASE authors writing on Asia).
