Japan: National Diet Library’s Image Bank of Public Domain Images Now Has an English Language Interface
Before the Internet and even before television, books were a major source of visual information. The NDL Image Bank showcases items from the National Diet Library’s substantial collection of visual materials, including ukiyo-e woodblock prints, books, magazines, and other forms of published media.
All the images in the NDL Image Bank are taken from digitized, public-domain content held by the NDL and can also be accessed via the NDL Digital Collections.
All the images on this website can be used for any purpose, including commercial purposes, without asking permission. We, however, kindly ask you cite our website when reproducing them.
