This text, comprised of thirty volumes and one-hundred forty-seven books, is a commentary of Nihon shoki written by the National Learning (kokugaku) scholar Suzuki Shigetane at the end of the Tokugawa period. Through the "Tensonkōrin" chapter of the "Jindai" volume, Shigetane gives a multi-perspective, detailed commentary which makes numerous references to related works that he recognized as necessary. The first volume of Nihon shoki den was begun in January of 1854, and the last volume was finished in March, 1862. Three hundred volumes were originally planned, and Shigetane made additions to the text until the year of his death. In Shigetane's scholarship, he positions Nihon shoki as the "formal history of the Imperial Court," and "norito" as the "manual for imperial court ceremonies," and attaches special importance to these two texts. Regarding his research on norito, Shigetane wrote Engishikinorito kōgi, among others. Nihon shoki den is included in Suzuki Shigetane Zenshū (1937-40, Suzuki Shigetane Zenshu kankōkai).
