OLD PHOTOS OF JAPAN
Your personal museum for Japan’s visual heritage
We collect and protect Japan’s visual heritage of everyday life between the 1850s and 1960s. Our main focus is everyday life, such as customs, people at work, street views, architecture, clothing, and so on.
We acquire vintage photographs, prints, and other images, conserve and research them, and share the findings. Many of our images are found abroad, we bring them back to Japan.
