Resources for Japan Scholars: Cultural Japan

Cultural Japan

This website aggregates content related to Japan and Japanese culture from museums, libraries and other collecting institutions both in Japan and globally (data for the Japan portion of the content is sourced via the Japan Search portal). The hub is searchable in both English and Japanese, and content can also be browsed according to “person”, “era” and “category”. Cultural Japan was developed collaboratively by organisations including Japan’s National Institute of Informatics and The University of Tokyo.
