Welcome to Cultural-Kokoro Network (Culture-KoNet)!

Cultural-Kokoro Network (Culture-KoNet) represents an international collection of cultural psychologists and other social scientists who are pursuing questions of culture.
Our home is Kyoto University’s Kokoro Research Center, located in the historically and culturally rich city of Kyoto, Japan.
Researchers at Culture-KoNet study how culture and the mind work together. We conduct cultural psychological empirical research on how cultural settings shape people’s emotions, cognition, motivations, and relationships.
In addition to full-time researchers and graduate students, we also connect researchers from around the world for both short-term and long-term collaborative visits. We work together on both basic research and applied problems.
We invite you to browse our website to learn more about the collaborative research taking place at Culture-KoNet.
