Kawai Shinpō Masthead

The Kawai Shinpō, initially published by Torajirō Fukunaga in 1904, was a weekly newspaper in Kauai. The paper consisted of two pages each of Japanese and English sections. Fukunaga was later affiliated with the newspaper the Hawai Shinpō in Honolulu; Uichi Fujita was the publisher. Similar to the Hawai Shinpō, the Kawai Shinpō opposed the first major plantation strikes and was considered pro-management and, thus inviting criticism from its rival Japanese papers. It continued to publish, however, until 1942.

『加哇新報』は1904年に福永虎次郎によって創刊されたカウアイ島の週刊紙である。日本語2ページ、英語2ページで構成されていた。のち、福永はホノルルの『布哇新報』と交流があり、編集者には藤田卯一がなった。『布哇新報』と同様に、『加哇新報』はプランテーション大ストライキに反対し、経営者寄りと見なされ、他の日本語新聞から非難を浴びた。しかし、1942年まで発行され続けた。
