Mainichi NewspapersMainichi Newspapers毎日新聞

The Mainichi Shimbun is Japan’s oldest newspaper with an archive that stretches back over 100 years through the Meiji, Showa and Taisei eras. The archive contains a vast and thorough collection of images from Japan’s recent history including an unparalleled Japanese documentation of WWII.

We are currently only able to showcase a very small portion of the archive in this site via the 10 gallery links below. However we can access the newspaper records offline for specific requested topics and we also have access to much more material with Japanese only captions. Feel welcome to contact us at contact,nipponnews,net with your inquiries.
