The Japan Times (Fujii Sawako)

The Japan Times Archives 1897–2018, newly released The Japan Advertiser
The Japan Times Digital

◆ The Japan Times Archives: The Japan Times was first published in March 1897, with the backing of Hirobumi Ito and Yukichi Fukuzawa, two key figures in Japan's Meiji Era modernization. It was the first English-language newspaper produced in Japan by Japanese editorial and managerial staff. The Japan Times Archives includes every page of every newspaper published since that first issue. Each page has been made searchable through OCR scans. It is now available through a purchase plan or an annual subscription. This spring, we released new content, “The Japan advertiser (1913-1940),” which provides a U.S. view on Japan ‘s diplomacy, especially Japan’s aggressive advancement into Asia during the pre-war period.
