Kikuzo II Visual, an online article database complete with images created by the Asahi Shimbun Company, presently enables users to search more than 15 million articles and advertisements in the paper since its first issue in 1879 (year 12 of the Meiji Era). In addition, Kikuzo II Visual includes magazines such as AERA and Shukan Asahi, an up-to-date modern dictionary Chiezo, a pictorial magazine Asahi Graph, the Who's Who Database and the Historical Photo Archive.

The Asahi Shimbun has added a database of its English-language newspapers in Kikuzo II Visual. You are able to perform a full-text search of articles published in the Asahi Shimbun section of "The International Herald Tribune/The Asahi Shimbun (the IHT/Asahi)," and "AJW (Asia & Japan Watch)" dating back to April 2001.

In 2018, We added past local news page images to the “Reduced-size Facsimile Edition” of its database. You can search the editions of thirty eight prefectures including Okinawa now.

The editions of other prefectures will also be added one by one.

In 2019, We added “Crop Page” function to the “Reduced-size Facsimile Edition” of its database.

In the workshop, techniques on how to use the ever-evolving Kikuzo II Visual will be taught, while including real-life examples of use.
