Worldwide activities on open access have triggered many universities to operate institutional repositories (IRs). The National Institute of Informatics (NII) has led a Japanese IR project since 2014 and, developing homegrown repository software named WEKO as a module for the content management system NetCommons (NC). Concepts of WEKO are “High Functionality”, “Easy” and “As you like”. WEKO has almost all functionalities you need as a repository system, and these can be customized and operated by browser. In addition, not only the repository functions but also variety of add-on can be utilized for designing your own web page. More than 250 universities in Japan are now operating WEKO as their IR. Since the WEKO has multilingual functionality, some of the Malaysian university has decided to employ it. In this paper, we summarize the repository related activity in Japan and point out the possible collaboration between open educational and repository.
