1995   "Yosha Bunko" (rɕ) refers to both this "" website and to the collection of websites which are affiliated with Yosha Bunko. Yosha Bunko, now the name of my personal library, began as Yosha Kenkyūjo (rɌ), the name on an "ex libris" seal I had made in 1970. I set up the website in 1995 when I first had an Internet connection that facilitated home-based websites. All the affiliated websites originated as offshoots of research and writing projects that began on this parent website.
