I have a small favor to ask
Old Photos of Japan aims to be your personal museum for Japan's visual heritage to increase our understanding of Japanese culture and society.
Finding, acquiring, scanning, restoring, researching and conserving these vintage images, and making the imagery and research freely available online, takes serious time, money and effort.
I do this without charging for access, selling user data, or running ads.
Your support helps to make this possible, and ensures that this important visual heritage of Japan will not be lost and forgotten.
If you can, please consider supporting Old Photos of Japan with a regular amount each month. Or become a volunteer.
Hi, I was wondering if there is a site where I can view photos of Ashiya City, Japan, from 1946 to 1955? Thank you.

There is more than one Ashiya in Japan, but I assume you mean Ashiya in Hyogo Prefecture. I have been unable to find any site focusing on old photos of Ashiya. A Google image search did dig up a few photos, but on disparate sites.
