"The history of photography in Japan being so intimately linked to the history of photography in The Netherlands, it was only natural that the history of the pioneering years of Japanese photography should be researched in the Printroom of Leiden University...


There are thousands of images there dated 1860-1900, and a thousand of them are available on CD-ROM. The only problem is the price, which is about 2000 Dutch Florins.

Still, if you're in or near Holland, this implies that you might be able to use Leiden University to do some significant research into 16th-19th century Japanese history.
