Taiwan Research center in Waseda university is one of a core of the academic networks in Japan. But it has also contribute a lot to exchange programs in graduate and undergraduate levels of the students between Waseda university and Taiwan national University. There are such related fields with Taiwan Studies as Japanese history, Oriental studies and comparative political studies. I want to argue whether and how historical legacies would contribute to social recognition of Taiwan Studies in Japanese society and to the development of Taiwan studies in general.
