Launched in 1955, The Japan News is an English-language daily published by The Yomiuri Shimbun, a leading Japanese newspaper with the largest circulation in the world. Known by several different names during its history (Japan News, Yomiuri Japan News, The Yomiuri, The Daily Yomiuri), The Japan News adopted its current name in 2013 as part of a major revamp of the newspaper’s layout and content.
Established a decade after the end of World War II, The Japan News has witnessed and recorded dramatic changes in Japanese society during the Showa, Heisei and Reiwa eras. Over the years, Japan has undergone several major transformations, including rapid economic growth, the bubble economy and its collapse, and lingering recessions—all of which have been captured in the pages of The Japan News.
