About

Stay up to date on Japanese American news. The Nichi Bei News rose out of the ashes of the historic Nichi Bei Times (1942-2009) and Nichi Bei Shimbun (1899-1942) legacy to launch the first nonprofit ethnic community newspaper of its kind in the U.S. in September 2009. From community issues and events taking place in the historic Japantowns and beyond, to entertainment profiles, food, film and book reviews, politics, hard news and commentaries, the Nichi Bei News has you covered.

Published by the innovative nonprofit Nichi Bei Foundation, we proudly follow the rich tradition of some 125 years of community leadership through quality media.
