The Ikeda Family Collection at Okayama University
The Ikeda Family Collection is a unique set of manuscripts, pictures and books that were donated to Okayama University when the modern structure of the University was established in 1949. The Collection was owned by the Ikeda Family that governed the southeastern part of modern day Okayama Prefecture from 1603-1867-the Edo period.
The 100,000 items of the Ikeda Family Collection are housed at the Okayama University Central Library and offer unique insights into life during the Edo period, for both veteran scholars and students.Further information
