Japan Chronicle

The English-language Japan Chronicle Weekly (1902–1940) was founded and based in Kobe, a port city that saw enormous expansion during the Chronicle’s lifetime. Edited by representative figures in this treaty port, the Chronicle provides a unique perspective not only on the settler communities in Japan and East Asia, but also to the historical development of East Asia as it happened.

As the Chronicle is an English-language newspaper edited and printed in Japan, the Chronicle is a valuable primary resource for students and scholars on modern history unable to work with Japanese language materials. The Japan Chronicle Online resource now offers the years 1919 – 1941. The remaining years 1902 – 1919 will be made available within the coming year.

Access this source both from the university as from home, using your ULCN login.
