This paper introduces the existence of 19th century instrumental meteorological data in Japan. Then we describe about data itself, such as observer, observed elements, schedule of observation, instruments, and also historical background of the records. In the end, we also describe with emphasis on climatological significance of the record which covers spatially and temporally blanc spot over East Asia.
