Aurel Stein’s visit to Japan

Galambos, Imre. “Sir Aurel Stein’s visit to Japan His diary and notebook.” In Helen Wang, ed., Sir Aurel Stein: Colleagues and collections. British Museum Research Publication 184 (2012): 1-9.

This paper is based on Aurel Stein’s diary and notebook he kept while travelling in Japan in  the spring of 1930. He only spent a few days in Japan, before going to Nanking to lobby for a visa and digging permit, but he met most of the Japanese scholars active in the newly emerging field of Dunhuang studies, both in Tokyo and the Kansai area.

The volume is an online publication available as British Museum Research Publication 184.
