This is a facsimile reprint of the 1919 edition published by Globe Encyclopedia in London and Chicago in two volumes with over 1,500 photographs. It is a major visual work of reference which explains Japanese modernization.

The entries include all modernized cities (Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe, Shimoseki, Nagasaki, etc.) and Japanese colonies in Manchuria, Taiwan, and Karafuto.

The wide-ranging thematic articles cover subjects including history, culture, education, religions, ethnicity (ainu), budo, medicine, law, politics, military, diplomacy, economics, finance, industry, mining, agriculture, forestry, publishing, transport, and labour.

The set also includes rare and important photographs (to be found only in this publication) of early twentieth-century streets and buildings before the Kanto earthquake of 1923 destroyed the Tokyo and Yokohama region.

Business data and various statistics are provided by the governor and the chamber of commerce of each city, and the texts are contributed by distinguished scholars like Shibasaburo Kitasato, Yosaburo Takekoshi, Shosuke Sato, I. Bryan, W. B. Mason, an J. Batchelor.

An indispensable tool for any academic and educational institutions with collections on the history of Japan and East Asia.
