Welcome to the Bank of Japan Archives
The Archives opened in 2002 as a section within the Institute for Monetary

repository for the Bank's historical records. The Archives preserves the
corporate memory of the Bank of Japan by acquiring, preserving, and making
accessible records of continuing value that describe the Bank's origins,
