A new semester is already in its third week, so you know what that means: new student visual anthropology photo journal blogs. Students have already enthusiastically posted on their initial impressions of their new setting here in Japan and are now busy researching and photographing for their next posts about their Japanese neighborhoods (with inspiration from Ted Bestor's film, Neighborhood Tokyo). Please scroll down to access their blogs. Come often and leave comments. There are a lot of great photos to see and helpful information to read. But your comments and feedback will make our blogging exercise even more successful. We are all about collaboration, open dialogue and of course good visual anthropology. よろしく！
