Welcome to the official website of the Japanese Association for Rural Studies!

 The Japanese Association for Rural Studies is composed of members who study the social and economic structure, history, and culture of farming and fishing villages in order to develop village society and improve the well-being of its residents.
 We have studied the past, present, and future of farmers and family behavior patterns, settlements, groups and organizations, agricultural production and livelihood, and local culture and community welfare.

 We provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in sociology, economics, history, law, anthropology, folklore, lifestyle studies, and environmental studies to publish their research findings and interact with each other.
