These include the largest map, film and television collections in the world.

Fine Prints: Japanese, pre-1915 Citation:
The Prints and Photographs Division houses more than 2,500 Japanese woodblock prints and drawings, dating from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries, by such artists as Hiroshige, Kuniyoshi, Sadahide, and Yoshiiku. Subjects include actors, women, landscapes, scenes from Japanese literature and daily life, and Western foreigners. Many schools and traditions are represented, but primary strengths include the Japanese art forms known as Ukiyo-e, translated as "pictures of the floating (or sorrowful) world"; and Yokohama-e, literally "pictures of Yokohama."
The Library of Congress appreciates the financial support provided by Nicihibunken (International Research Center for Japanese Studies, an Inter-University Research Institute Corporation) to scan 1,100 of the Ukiyo-e prints.http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/jpd/ more Language: jpn Japanese
