A fine start. I think it would be interesting to learn about the history of the Japanese passport. When was it first instituted? What kinds of documents preceded the passport in pre-Meiji times? What kinds of passports were issued to the colonies and other territories in 1895-1945? British passport is a good example of the extra kinds of information which could be included on this page. What do the passports say on the inside, in place of where a British passport would read "Her Britannic Majesty's Secretary of State requests and requires in the Name of Her Majesty all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary." ?
