Iwakura Tomomi Archive
This archive features around 1,700 first-grade documents, including letters addressed to Iwakura Tomomi. These shine a light on the history of the Meiji Restoration. Research into the materials has elucidated the events of the Tokyo Tento (the transfer of the capital to Tokyo), for example. The archive was designated an Important Cultural Property in 2013.
