    Who We Are

    The Amagasaki Municipal Archives (AMA) was established in 1975 as an extension to the Amagasaki Municipal Office of Historiography under General Affairs Bureau of Amagasaki City.

    The AMA contributes to a mission of Amagasaki city to conserve historical archives related to the city by collecting and accessing private collections, public records, books, maps, photographs, leaflets and numerous others. A list of our collections is available in "Our Holdings".

    In addition, we serve as the center library for local histories throughout Japan. We collect books, historical reports, bulletins and magazines that other local municipal archives publish.The AMA is open to public, if you wish to research the history of Amagasaki and other areas. Please feel free to contact our staff for any questions.
