Hoji Shinbun (邦字新聞)) Digital Collection (Stanford University & Hoover Institution)

About the Hoji Shinbun Digital Collection: The Hoji Shinbun Digital Collection is currently the world’s largest online archive of open-access, full‑image Japanese American and other overseas Japanese newspapers. All image content in this collection has enhancements added where possible, thus rendering the text maximally searchable. The holdings of each title are also browsable by date, with each title cross searchable with other titles on the platform. This collection is planned to contain some sixty newspapers published in Hawaii and North America. Most publications present a mix of content in Japanese and English, with formats and the proportionality of Japanese/English often changing as a reflection of shifting business and social circumstances.

Publication Coverage: 50 titles

Elephind Search Tip of the Month:
Searching for someone's name? Try a "proximity search" like "John Smith"~5
The ~5 part tells Elephind to find items containing both the words "John" and "Smith" where they are no more than 5 words apart. So as well as finding "John Smith" it will also find "John J. Smith", "John Frederick Smith", "John Fullerton-Smith", and even ""Smith, John".
