Report by Watanabe Kanjūrō. Cf. pref.

Title translated into English: Report of the expedition to Australia.

Synopsis of content: This is a report of a delegation of Japanese sent to Australia by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Though the title would indicate a more comprehensive report, the area of Australia covered in detail by the report only includes Queensland and the Northern Territory. The first chapter contains an overview of Australia, including descriptions of its geography, climate, economic conditions, and history. The next two chapters contain more detailed information on Queensland and the Northern Territory.
