Access to all issues of the first graphic magazine published in Japan from 1889-1916. Known as a major journal source for the research of customs and social mores, the magazine covered social and cultural trends and conditions in the Edo, Meiji and Taisho periods.
Feature articles were first accompanied by lithograph illustrations that were later replaced with photography, and so the magazine assumes the characteristic of an illustrated encyclopedia for matters concerning the early modern and modern periods. Subjects include the Sino-Japanese War, the Russo-Japanese War, disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis, in addition to fashion and popular culture.
