The Japan News: 60th Anniversary: April Renovation
The Japan News, the English-language daily newspaper published by The Yomiuri Shimbun, will commemorate its 60th anniversary on April 1. To mark this occasion, the pages and content of The Japan News will be improved to bring you an even better reading experience. We will carry more in-depth and insightful commentary and analysis articles, start new Japanese cuisine and tourism sections, and launch kabuki and sumo columns written by reporters specializing in these fields.
Japanese washoku cuisine has become popular abroad in recent years. In our Tuesday edition, we will start a new page called “Delicious” that introduces simple recipes, extensive background information about washoku and popular restaurants. By uncovering the history of Japanese cuisine, unknown anecdotes and the passion chefs pour into their dishes, we will make cooking meals at home and dining out fun. You might even be inspired to pass on the charm of this food to people from overseas.
