The Japanese Connection : Serving since 1985

Japanese Anthropology Interpretation Services

Anthropology is the study of human cultures and their interaction, both past and present.

This discipline draws and builds upon knowledge from the social and biological sciences, as well as the humanities and physical sciences, in order to fully understand the true and full extent of the complexity of cultures across all of human history.

Historically, anthropologists, particularly in the USA, divide the discipline into four areas: sociocultural anthropology, biological/physical anthropology, archaeology, and linguistic anthropology.

With over twenty-five years’ experience, The Japanese Connection can provide expert Japanese language interpreters for any occasion for which you may require interpretation services.


Anthropology in Japan

Japanese anthropologists are largely concerned with the transformations in class, gender and identity which have taken place in Japanese society over the past century. Anthropologists in Japan often look at the shifting cultural forms and categories that Japanese citizens have used to define their own personal identities, as well as collective Japanese identities, over the course of decades of rapid and extensive technological change, war and economic fluctuation. Also of interest are interactions between Japan and Western cultures, the impact of colonialism in Japan, and the beginnings of Japanese globalization.

Anthropological studies take place not only in Japan, but across the globe, to help describe different cultures and human interactions between those cultures. Language barriers must not impede fluent communication in research and sharing of information between international institutes.

Our Japanese anthropology interpretation covers areas such as:


Biological anthropology


Sociocultural anthropology



Gender Studies


Cultural Studies

Industrialised Societies

Natural Sciences


Indigenous Rights


Observational Studies
