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.

Thank you,
Kjeld Duits

Thanks, Peter. I just visited your shop. Really interesting, too!

·

thanks Kjeld, are you based in Japan? I think i caught something about kirai.net about somebody he knew doing something similiar to this.

·

That could be me. There are probably not too many other people doing this, if any. I am actually based between Osaka and Kobe, but travel all over Japan.

·

I just noticed your partner sites, you have some very solid sites. I look forward to reading more from you.

Thanks for the nice words, Peter. The past two years or so I have been in the process of either redoing my sites or starting up new ones. Old Photos of Japan started last month. Japan Photo Stock started recently, too, but used to be part of iKjeld.com. JAPANESE STREETS got a complete make-over that was completed last August. Postcards of Japan is new, and way behind schedule to launch. I am now working on the make-overs for iKjeld.com and Japan Links, and also have at least two more sites waiting in the wings. It keeps me off the street. ;-)

‘It keeps me off the street.’ Its good to hear! I’ve started building similiar sites, Japan related, ready for a future move back to Japan. So I’m glad to see that other people are having success with it.

Love to see the sites. Do you already know when you’ll be moving?

travelfolio.co.uk , is one of the more complete sites along with Japanesey. I’d still like to improve the design of travelfolio, but I’m quite happy with the overall layout.

Travelfolio.co.uk is really nice as well. The blue links for RSS at the bottom are virtually impossible for me to read, so you may want to consider a different color.
