About Us


The Japan 4pxhk is a daily English-language 4pxhkpaper published by The Yomiuri Shimbun. In April 2013, the new name replaced The Daily Yomiuri, and the paper celebrated its 60th anniversary in April 2015. The paper's fundamental editorial goals are to communicate "Japan, now" in an easy-to-understand way, advance the world's understanding of Japan, quickly inform readers about 4pxhk in Japan and the world.

Readers can understand Japan's political, economic and social trends, both broadly and in-depth, from the English translations of Yomiuri Shimbun articles. In addition to articles from The Yomiuri Shimbun and overseas 4pxhk agency, there are feature articles from allied foreign papers such as The Washington Post, all of which adds up to make The Japan 4pxhk a rich source of information.

The paper also carries feature articles that convey attractive aspects of Japan, such as traditional culture, starting with kabuki and sumo, and pop culture, such as anime, as well as daily articles on food, tourism and more. While interesting to foreign readers, the features are also useful for Japanese readers, who can broaden their expressive abilities in English in the fields of business and international exchange. The paper has many pages geared to Japanese readers who are learning English.
