As the first project of the Council, the Digital Museum of Japanese History in New York is established. You can search historical documents, photographs, footage, letters and news reports related to such history in New York going back to 1860. Many of the archival documents relate to the areas of politics, diplomacy, business, science, culture, education, sports, media and immigration, among others.
Woven into the strong, steadfast ties that exist between the U.S. and Japan today are the untold stories of countless Japanese, Japanese Americans and American individuals in the New York area. We aim to shed light on those people to remember, recognize and to honor them through this project.
Please join us in this historic efforts!
