The term Kyoto-kanke-shizoku refers to the low-level functionaries who served in the Imperial Court until 1869. They becameunemployed and impoverished as a result of the Meiji Restoration. The organizations Heian-gikai and Kyoto-Ohkitsu-zaidan were founded tosupport them. Heian-gikai Siryo （the Historical Materials of the Heian-gikai） and Ohkitsu-zaidan Siryo （the Historical Materials of theOhkitsu-zaidan） are the materials handed down from generation to generation in these organizations. In 2016, these materials were donatedto the Kyoto Institute, Library and Archives. This text was written to introduce them for being used in the study on the Kyoto-kankeshizoku.
