We bring the news to Japanese American and Asian American communities from Sacramento to Fresno, San Francisco to Los Angeles.

A few quick facts …

  • The Nichi Bei Weekly was formed by the Nichi Bei Foundation, which consists of former staff of the Nichi Bei Times, community leaders, and professionals within the media industry.
  • The Nichi Bei Weekly has the trust and loyalty of its readers with its recognition as the natural successor to the Nichi Bei Times, which had a legacy stretching back to 1899. We have regained the same number of Times subscribers within three months of starting the paper in September of 2009.
  • Japanese Americans are a highly educated sector of the population, with above average incomes, and we are the only Japanese American weekly in Northern California.
  • The Nichi Bei Weekly has a remarkable team of contributing writers and popular columnists. And our special issues cover culturally significant events, such as Obon, the Cherry Blossom Festival and the New Year.
