This is a short historiography of Japanese Turkology from the 1930s to the present.  As it is well known, it began with the studies of the ancient history of the Turks in Northern and Central Asia, based mainly on Chinese sources.  Since the 1960s it has made gradual progresses in Saljuq and Ottoman studies.  In the recent decades, especially in the field of Ottoman studies, specialisation in research has been remarkable, with results published not only in Japanese, but also in Turkish and English by younger researchers.  The attached bibliography presents 148 titles with their English translation.
