Several dimensions of India-Japan cultural  ties historically shaped and reshaped by movement of people and goods via a multitude of inter-Asian sea and land routes have remained less researched. The Forum aims to unravel and document these relatively under-researched India-Japan historical ties through a series of lectures, seminars and publications. 

The forum has evolved from deliberation at an International Conference:  ‘India and Japan: Unearthing Lesser Known Historical and Cultural Linkages’, New Delhi, November 15-17, 2018 and subsequent publication of conference papers and their dissemination as an electronic book India-Japan Narratives: Lesser Known Historical and Cultural Interactions, edited by Sushila Narsimhan (MOSAI Publication 2021, ISBN No: 9 788195 255603)
