President Giorguli has advised and nurtured many Sylff fellows over the years as professor and director of the Colmex Center for Demographic, Urban, and Environmental Studies. Professor García Rodríguez, meanwhile, is the director of the Center for Asian and African Studies at Colmex. His research focus is Japanese art history, especially ukiyo-e

The visit was a good opportunity to discuss how the donations to the Sylff Colmex Earthquake Relief Fund would be used.

This was the first visit by the president of a Sylff institution to our new office in Roppongi. Sylff fellows and steering committee members are always welcome to stop by the Foundation’s office when visiting Tokyo. Please let us know in advance if you have plans to come to Tokyo!
