Recently, whether in Japan or abroad, I am often asked, “Where are you living now?” The answer is that half the time I live in the U.S., a little less than half in Japan, and the other month or so I travel to China or Europe. Having retired from my chaired professorship at Stanford University three years ago, I became a senior fellow at the Institute for International Studies. I am also visiting professor at the Graduate School of International Corporate Strategy at Hitotsubashi University, through the introduction by Professors Hirotaka Takeuchi
and Ikujirō Nonaka
. From April 2007, responding to the leadership of Chair Hideki Katō, I am participating as distinguished fellow at Tokyo Foundation.
