4.The relations between Japan and the Rusian Far East and Sakhalin via the Sea of Japan
5.The rise and fall of fishery in the northern seas
In 1995, I continued researching the above and also researched :

2.The influence of Russian emigres on Japanese culture
3.The cultural significance of the treaty, exchanging Sakhalin for the Kuril Islands, and the Russo-Japanese war
In 1996 I published the results of my research, and in 1994-1997 I published 14 papers in Japan (one will appear this April), 3 in Russia, 2 in Germany, and 1 in Poland. Twice I read a paper at an international conference in Vladivostok. I also conducted research and collected materials in Sapporo, Niigata, Osaka, Nagasaki, and on the Izu peninsula.
