The Shibusawa Eiichi Memorial Foundation has been working on the English translation of content summaries from the Shibusawa Eiichi denki shiryo (Shibusawa Eiichi Biographical Materials). On Tuesday, March 31, 2020, English translations of the content summaries from the first three volumes of the Denki shiryo has been made available on the Foundation’s website.
- Denki Shiryo / Shibusawa Eiichi
The Denki shiryo is divided by industry and business, with the content summaries, brief outlines of specific events, in chronological order. They thus provide an overview of Shibusawa Eiichi’s involvement in various projects. The English translation of the content summaries was undertaken in response to increasing interest in Shibusawa Eiichi from those outside of Japan.
The new website is still a beta version and the English translations provided are subject to change. We hope they will be of interest.
