Abstract: The two authors, one Japanese the other German, both teaching German at universities in Western Japan deal in their paper with the role of German Culture Studies ('Landeskunde') in the Japanese DaF-classroom (German as a Foreign Language). Doing so, they analyze whether it suffices to have 'Landeskunde' integrated in DaF-classes as it is the usual case or whether it deserves to claim its own right, i.e. being taught as an independent subject.
