Japan 100 Years Ago

Friday, March 28, 2008 Posted: 07:47 PM JST

I have started a new multilingual blog showing photos of Japan between 1860 and the 1930s: Old Photos of Japan.

The images show old customs and street views. Well-researched articles take you back in history. Many of the articles contain maps and additional illustrations, making them a fun and useful resource on Meiji, Taisho and early Showa Japan.

The photographs can be searched by keyword, period, theme, location, photographer and medium.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
