Welcome! This is a brief introduction to our empirical micro group at the University of Tokyo.

As you can see below, we are fairly large group and span most major areas of empirical microeconomics research. The atmosphere in the department is very collegial and research focused. We have an (almost) weekly empirical micro research seminar, nice facilities, several affiliated research centers, lots of international visitors, and excellent graduate students. Our beautiful campus is located in central Tokyo on the former estate of a samurai family. Life in Tokyo is great with a mix of ancient and modern, excellent transportation, a fantastic restaurant scene, mild weather, and easy access to both the ocean and mountains. Tokyo is routinely ranked above the top global cities for economy, liveability, and safety. We hope you would consider applying to our department and joining us!
