Back to Kyoto (京都・オン・マイ・マインド)

I had the privilege of giving an invited lecture at the Kyoto International Manga Museum on the influence of manga artists on early Japanese video games.

For this I travelled back to Kyoto for a few days. I reunited with host mother from the Stanford Overseas Studies Program some ten years ago. 

While the city was positively overrun with holiday tourists it was still great to walk around the old sites. I also made a trip out to Ritsumeikan University to visit the fine folks at their Center for Game Studies.

I’m now in Tokyo for a few weeks before heading back to Vancouver.
