Japan News (in English)

If you are looking to keep up to date on the news from Japan there are a number of newspapers (shimbun) that publish in English.

Most of these newspapers can be found at major newsstands in Tokyo. If you are outside the city they are a little harder to come by but you can always check out the news from the comfort of your own home with these links.

While I don’t subscribe to any of the papers listed above I find that The Japan Times Festival Listings page is a handy guide to some fun things to do in and around Tokyo. The Japan Times also issues “Weekend Scene” on weekly basis which is a good source for event listings and reviews along with some great features. Weekend Scene is available for free at a number or tourist destinations and other establishments where foreigners tend to congregate. The main features of Weekend Scene are usually online via the The Japan Times link above.
