Resources Hub: Online Resources for Japan Scholars

Search By Keyword


This online resources hub introduces open-access digital humanities projects, databases and other material which may be useful for Japan scholars in the context of research or teaching. Resources are primarily sourced from universities, libraries, archives and collecting institutions as well as government and non-government organisations. While some Japanese-language resources are included, the focus is on English-language resources.
