There are a number of fantastic archives in Japan for doing research on migration history. The Japanese Overseas Migration Museum and Diplomatic Record Office are the two most prominent, but in a series of blog posts linked to below, I will highlight a number of these collections, with reference also to libraries I found useful for my research.

Museum of Japanese Emigration to Hawai’i, Suo-Oshima, Yamaguchi Prefecture
