Nichimy Corporation was founded in 1950, originally as a microfilm service company in Tokyo. Since then, we have been providing state-of-the-art micro graphics and digital imaging services to our clients, and we are well respected for having the highest quality products in the industry. In 1992, we started a scanning project in the United States. As part of our business expansion plan, in 2006 Nichimy Corporation opened its first U.S. office in College Park, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. In addition to microfilm and scanning services, we started providing research services in the United States. Based on the extensive resources at the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, our research found the whereabouts of missing Japanese remains at Iwo Jima and helped the Japanese government locate their burial sites. The research during 2009-2012 contributed to the recovery of more than 1,000 remains—a historical breakthrough—which the Japanese and overseas media publicized.


Nichimy Corporation will continue providing the highest quality services in research, data collection, and preservation of historical documents.
