Meiji Gakuin University Library's digital archives

Springing forth from the Hepburn Academy in Yokohama during the Bakumatsu era(the final years of the Tokugawa shogunate), Meiji Gakuin University was established through the merges of private schools and educational institutions around Yokohama and the Tsukiji Settlement. As a result, Meiji Gakuin University Library boasts a vast array of contemporary Western books as well as rare works collected through academic research. These works, spanning every genre, are now being made available to the public.
