Overseas Japanese-language Newspapers


Plans are under way to scan overseas Japanese-language newspapers for a digital file and then create a database with full text search capability. Currently available at Nichibunken are the prewar issues of Japanese-language newspapers published in Brazil, home to the largest community of Japanese immigrants in the world. Step by step the scope of the database will be broadened to include prewar newspapers published in other countries of South America, as well as North America and Hawai‘i.
Data Count: 3,328 items (As of April 2015)
