Visiting the Dadaocheng Customers of Tai-yi-hou in Nagasaki through Time Traveling
The Chinese enterprise Tai-yi-hou in Nagasaki, one of the figures in Traveling in Time Exhibition, was established in the beginning of the 20th century. Its commercial trade network crossed East-Asia including the treaty ports in Vladivostok, Korean Peninsula, coastline of China, Taiwan, Luzon, Malay Peninsula, etc. Tai-yi-hou’s customers were mainly Chinese merchants in Taiwan and Southeast Asia. Since Taiwan became the colony of Japan in 1895, the Japanese Government proactively increased economic and trade relationships between Japan and Taiwan. Within this context, Tai-yi-hou gained the upper hand in expanding its business to Taiwan with its advantageous location, language and culture. Among all Tai-yi-hou Papers, approximately 17,000 commercial letters sent from Taiwan were preserved until today, and around 10,000 of which were sent from stores in Dadaocheng.

Introduction to International Collaboration of Taiwan Cultural and Historical Resources Acquisition Project (ICTAP, 2009-2012)

In order to develop knowledge economy and utilize pioneering information technology, our government strongly promoted “Taiwan e-Learning and Digital Archives Program (2008-2012)” in 2008, expecting national archive digitization will effectively inherit culture, increase and apply knowledge. The National Sci-Tech Programs covered many areas. It included 8 sub-projects in order to execute and supervise its development in every dimension.

International Collaboration and Promotion of Taiwan e-Learning and Digital Archives Program was one of the sub-projects. The theme of this program was connecting Taiwan to a global network. It not only introduced Taiwan’s liberal arts and biological diversities to the international community but also acquired scattered relics and biological materials overseas through various cooperative approaches. International Collaboration of Taiwan Cultural and Historical Resources Acquisition Project (2009-2012) was established in 2009 as the sub-project of International Collaboration and Promotion of Taiwan e-Learning and Digital Archives Program. For the goal of supplementing archival source and research materials and improving the environment of academic research in Taiwan, it convened several National-level institutions to jointly acquire scattered archives overseas.

The cooperative strategies of the ICTAP were acquiring digital archives and adding value to the digital content. Each institute took its own role to jointly accomplish the project. The Institute of Taiwan History and the Research Center for Humanities and Social Sciences, Academia Sinica, executed the overseas acquiring project of archival documents and geospatial data separately. The National Central Library concentrated on collecting rare books and the National Palace Museum acquired historical maps. These institutes concentrated their efforts in order to:

  1. Establish international collaborative network and acquire Taiwan historical sources scattered overseas.
  2. Improve strategies and practice of international collaboration through field investigation.
  3. Integrate Taiwan’s cultural and historical sources and promote the accomplishments of acquiring sources overseas.

The ICTAP successfully ended in 2012 when the National Sci-Tech Programs was completed. During the executing period, our members had visited 14 archival institutions in China, Japan, Russia, the United States and South Korea. The acquired result can be categorized in four fields: old archival documents, rare books, photographic materials and digital sources. For more details please refer to Gallery page.
