| Heian-Period Diaries
The database is being created in kundoku (“Japanese” or explanation reading) of the full texts of old diaries, etc. written in the mid-Heian period.
Reading Heian records in kundoku is extremely difficult, so the kundoku reading in this database is released to the public not as a conclusive but as a tentative reading. The Midō kanpaku ki (The Diary of Fujiwara no Michinaga) and the Gonki (Fujiwara no Yukinari) were released (as of March 2013).
This is scheduled to be followed by the Shunki (Fujiwara no Sukefusa), Shōyūki (Fujiwara no Sanesuke), and Sakeiki (Minamoto no Tsuneyori) diaries.
