Local Ordinances in Prefectures

The PDOP Room holds a collection of local ordinances in force and prefectural gazettes in which local ordinances and rules appear from all 47 prefectures. Holdings of prefectural gazettes, however, are limited to post-war issues. (Only the gazette of the Tokyo Metropolis begins with prewar issues.)

For information on prefectural gazettes held by other domestic libraries, see the "Kanpo/kaigiroku to sogo mokuroku (Union Catalog of Official gazettes and Proceedings of the National Diet in Japan) as of December 31, 1979" (in Japanese) edited by the National Diet Library.
