Chapter Summary

This appendix presents a note on the author's experiences in Japan. In accordance with an agreement concerning scholarly exchanges between Peking University and Tokyo University, the author accepted an invitation from Tokyo University and spent four weeks, March 10 to April 6, 1985, visiting Japan. Although this was his fourth trip to Japan, it was an unusually rich four weeks that he spent there. This trip afforded the author the chance to learn through fresh experiences what he had spent the last few decades acquiring from books. The author's duties at the Center for Medieval Chinese History at Peking University concerned arranging and doing research on Dunhuang manuscripts and ancient letter. At Tokyo he gave a lecture on questions concerning these Dunhuang materials. Professor Togawa served as the author's guide to Kyoto. He was a specialist in the history of ancient Chinese thought, and has written and translated many books.
