But given that I am, after all, an outsider that picture is a personal one that might not be subscribed to by Kurokawa’s residents. I hope that this book will repay in some small measure all that I owe these many people. I also wish to thank the anonymous reviewers of my manuscript; their comments, even where I disagreed with them, stimulated my thinking and contributed materially to the book. I also would like to acknowledge the publication subvention which was very kindly provided by the JaDe Foundation.
