The Historiographical Institute of the University of Tokyo (HI) is Japan’s only national-university-established research institution for the study of historical materials that span Japan’s pre-modern history from the eighth to the nineteenth century. Its mission is to collect and analyse various historical materials from holdings both in Japan and overseas and compile and publish them as key collections of Japanese historical materials spanning 150 years for the benefit of academia and society. The HI has established a research system to survey and study historical materials from both Japan and overseas and convert the accumulated historical information and research findings into research resources, thereby supporting the academic base of Japanese history through publications and by disseminating valuable knowledge resources. In this workshop, we will present the main features of our databases together with the digital archives of the Shoho Ryukyu Kuniezu and Wako-zukan, which were launched in December 2021.
