Dai Nippon
Medals and Badges
大日本勲章・記念章
Documenting the wide range of medals, awards, badges, and fobs from imperial Japan (roughly 1874 to 1945).

Start by seeing all the free pages I have by going to the
SITE MAP.

I would like this site to be as informative as possible, and for that to be successful, I will no doubt need help.
As you will see as you glance through the pages, some of the photos are inadequate and some pages are incomplete.
Little by little I hope to rectify this. If anyone has nice photos that I might be able to use, I would really appreciate it.


Here is a brief introduction to Japanese medals.
Do you have Japanese or
Manchukuo medals to sell?
