Multilingual Photoblog of Old Photographs of Japan.
Daily uploads of rare photographs and postcards of Japan between 1860 and the 1930's.
These images display an abundance of information about the urban settings and customs of Japan. This is further augmented by well-researched articles accompanying the images. Many of the articles contain maps and additional illustrations, making them a very useful resource on modern Japan, especially the Meiji, Taisho and early Showa periods.
The photographs can be searched by keyword, period, theme, location, photographer and medium.
The site was launched on March 1, 2008 and displays photos from a private collection of many thousands of rare photographs and maps.
