Started in 1994, the Stanford Guide to Japan Information Resources (or "JGuide") is a topically arranged directory of online information resources in and about Japan. Much of the focus is placed on resources about Japan in the English language, and visitors can use their search engine or dive right into their topical subheadings. These sections include "Society & Culture", "Law & Regulation", "Health & Medicine" and nine other areas. Each resource is annotated, along with information about when the link was added to the site. The JGuide also contains a "Tools" area which features links to information about currency conversion, weather, news outlets, and other online gateways of note. The site also contains a link for users who wish to submit an online resource for potential inclusion in the JGuide.
