Rafu Shimpo is the longest running Japanese American newspaper in the United States. Full text. In Japanese and English, 1914-2021.
Rafu Shimpo began in 1903 supporting the small but growing Japanese community in the Little Tokyo area of Los Angeles, California. By the 1940s it was the most widely circulated paper in the region and included a weekly English section for second generation Japanese Americans. It was forced to cease publication and its publisher was imprisoned by the government during World War II, but it was reestablished in 1946, and continues today as a bilingual, print and digital newspaper.
