授業の内容  
Increasing interconnection and ongoing globalization were long interpreted as factors that diminish geographical differences, leading in its extreme form to an “end of geography”. In contrary to this prediction, in fact, these developments are accompanied by an intensified interest in the regions and local differences that can be observed also in Japan. Places and place names are employed to sell products, and regional marketing strategies, accompanied by a rise of yurukyara and the promotion of local festivals, became to be seen as the savior of local economies, or the cure for depopulation. This class provides the tool to decipher this trend, by looking at Japan from the viewpoint of regional geography.
