Welcome to the WikiProject Japan Photo taskforce, set up to better organize the effort to obtain free photos for use in Japan-related articles.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.

Scope and goals[edit]

This project is designed to improving Japan-related articles on Wikipedia by including free photos in them in order to make them more interesting and effective. You can participate by uploading your pictures to Wikimedia Commons under the GFDL license or a similar free-use license. Uploading the images to Commons makes it possible for any Wikimedia project to use the images more easily.

Additionally, we want to move any properly licensed images being used on the Japanese Wikipedia to Commons to make them more useful and useable here.
