Resources for Japan Scholars

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, this page focuses on English-language resources.

The resources are categorised according to theme and/or media featured. Each category has its own dedicated webpage which provides a brief overview of each resource listed. As many of the resources are cross-category, links to related categories are included at the bottom of each page.

The resources hub is a work in progress and will continue to grow. To suggest a resource, please contact us via the email address at the bottom of this page.

November 10, 2020: This resources hub is currently being restructured. As a result, some links may be temporarily broken. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and look forward to unveiling the new-look hub in the coming weeks.
