"The development of the internet in Japan, a changing world, and the future of
internet culture … These are some of the many themes about which we wanted to
hear from “The father of the internet in Japan.”
Professor Jun Murai of the Faculty of Environment and Information Studies has
reached retirement age, and began a new phase of activity as an all-Keio
distinguished professor from April 2020.
The 40 years which have passed since the internet’s appearance in Japan
coincide with the 40 years of Professor Murai’s research career. Now, as
internet culture is in the process of transforming, we asked about the future
challenges awaiting us, while tracing the history and trajectories of both
Professor Murai and the internet."
I had the pleasure of meeting Professor Murai at Keiodaigakuen when I was
working with the EIS Faculty around 20 years ago.
