The team that keeps YCAPS on track and moving forward
Director for Education
Besides his research into Japanese and Pacific nautical archaeology, Mike Perrin has been examining Japan’s post-medieval maritime interaction with Europe at the Oxford Centre for Maritime Archaeology since 2014. Both of these focal points come together at the port of Uraga, the chokepoint for all maritime movement coming into Tokyo Bay, making this port Mike’s central research focus. He has lived and worked in Japan for over three decades and is also an Adjunct Lecturer at the National Defense Academy of Japan.
