The Rafu Shimpo (羅府新報, L.A. Japanese Daily News) is the longest-running Japanese American newspaper in the United States. 

Note: Due to the internment of its publisher during World War II, publication of The Rafu Shimpo was completely suspended from 1942-1945, and no issues were produced. The lack of database content for this period is not a gap, but reflects the publication schedule during these years.
