About the Library
The International Research Center for Japanese Studies, commonly
refered to as Nichibunken, was established in May 1987 as an
Inter-University Research Institute under the Ministry of Education,
Science, Sports, and Culture. The Center was founded to foster
comprehensive international and interdisciplinary research and to
support scholars of Japanese studies from around the world.
The library, which was established on those same principles, aims to
collect a wide variety of materials needed for Japanese studies and to
serve researchers here and abroad.
This library also functions as the main library for the Department of
Japanese Studies in the School of Cultural Studies of the Graduate
University for Advanced Studies (founded on April 4, 1992).
