Early Modern Database

Early Modern Database (Database of Japan's Early Modern Economy)

The Early Modern Database consists of data extracted from records of the Mitsui family. Spanning the period from the mid-18th century to early years of the Meiji period, it provides daily information on rice prices in Osaka, the exchange rate between gold and silver, and the weather, as well as information on events that are likely to have affected the economy at the time, such as the reminting of currency, disasters, etc.
