Read it in the Rafu

118 Years of Japanese American Community Journalism

Since 1903, The Rafu Shimpo has been there for you and your family’s most important moments.

In addition to covering the larger news of the day, it has remained one of the few media outlets to chronicle the lives and stories of our community – from business and social announcements, to sports and civic events, to engagements, weddings, births, graduations and obituaries.

For generations, The Rafu has been the daily journal of Japanese America.

If you value news about our community from the perspective of community members, The Rafu Shimpo continues to deliver. As one of the last Japanese American newspapers in the country and the only one in the Greater Los Angeles area, we remain reliant on your ongoing support.

Help us continue to serve you for another 118 years. Your support will allow The Rafu to keep our website vital, informative and FREE.

Thank you for your faithful support and we invite you – as always – to Read it in The Rafu(.com).
