Japanese Studies

Welcome to the UCLA Library Guide for Japanese Studies. This guide presents both introductory and in-depth information for Japan-related research.

The Japanese Studies library guide is your one-stop shop to finding research/scholarly resources related to Japan. You can find us on the second floor of YRL in the East Asian Library. Feel free to book a research consultation if you need help. If you are new to using the UCLA Library, please scroll down to "Tips for Using the Library". ありがとうございます!
