Japan Center for Asian Historic Records

JACAR is a digital database of Japan's historical records testifying to its pre-war relations with the Asian countries. It is an ongoing project archiving official documents of the Cabinet, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as the Army and Navy, dating from the Meiji era through 1945. In an effort to share the facts of history, images of the original documents are made public through this site on an unprecedented scale.

The site is available in Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean. You can also access the National Archives of Japan Digital Gallery and see visual materials such as maps, drawings, scrolls, photographs, etc.
