Preserving Archives for the Future

Public Records.
They are records created or received by public servants and are the evidence of the various activities of the government and historical events.
They are also the shared assets of the people, transcending generations.

The National Archives of Japan  is where these historical records, from the past to the future, are preserved and provided for use by the public.
