Researching the JL123 isho (last messages) – Update


As I have posted about before, since I moved my website to this one, consistently one of the most popular post each month is the one that contains my translations of the isho (last messages) written on JL123 (JAL 123).

So, a couple of years ago, I decided to do some more research about the isho and what people’s interest in them is. As part of this research, I conducted about people’s interest in and impressions of the isho.

After two years I have now closed this survey and plan to analyse the results and bring them into a publication that I will write after I have completed writing the second edition of Japan: The Basics.

Thank you to all those who took the time to complete the survey, your co-operation is much appreciated.
