118 Years of Japanese American Community Journalism
The Rafu Shimpo has been there for you and your family’s most important moments since its founding in 1903. Besides covering the larger news of the day, it has been one of the few media outlets that chronicled the lives of our community: from business and social announcements to engagements, weddings, births, graduations and obituaries.
Today, if you are seeking news about our community from the perspective of community members, the Rafu Shimpo still delivers. As one of the last Japanese American newspapers in the country and the only one in the Greater Los Angeles area, we need your on-going support. Help keep this website FREE.
