Miyoshi Tokusaburou Papers-Feelings and Memories Traveling through Time
Miyoshi Tokusaburou Papers, one of the figures in Traveling in Time Exhibition, includes personal papers and commercial operating documents. Among these archives, personal papers, which are 96 in total, include memoirs, personal correspondence, photographs taken in Taiwan, and inventories of personal collections. Commercial operating papers are the documents which were created while he was running the branch shop of Tsujirihei in Taiwan from 1899 to 1903. There are 49 commercial operating papers in total. These papers are important sources for the research into Miyoshi Tokusaburou’s commercial activities and public service in Taiwan. In addition, we can also learn Mr. Miyoshi’s turning point in his life and his special relationship with the government at that time. Hence, these historical documents are invaluable.

2019 Academia Sinica Open House Day was Successfully Concluded!
2019-10-31

On the Open House Day, the Institute of Taiwan History selected trade letters related to Chinese herbal medicine from the significant archives: Tai-yi Hao Papers of Nagasaki (1889-1959). The exhibition, Kang, Tai, Yi, Shou—Taipei Commercial Letters Related to Chinese Herbal Medicine, featured correspondence between Tai-yi Hao and stores in Taipei. It presented the import process of the herbal medicine, such as American ginseng, edible bird's nest from Thailand and Vietnam, Korean ginseng, snow fungus, and Kanto velvet antler. The medicine had been displayed in shop windows in Dadaocheng in the colonial period, attracting customers to buy for recovering from or preventing illness.

Except for the profound exhibitions, our interactive activity was inviting the audience to play a computer game. In this game, the player would be a staff member of Tai-yi Hao. They had to arrange goods in the storehouse and identify the Suzhou codes in time to complete the challenges. Many audiences gave feedback on this game and said “it is intellectual and enjoyable.”
