Nichibei Hyōron Masthead

In 1908 the Nichibei Hyōron was a monthly magazine published by Kageo “Fūun” Katayama, who also published Amerika. The Nichibei Hyoron featured kanshi (Chinese poetry). The magazine published its thirty-year-anniversary special issue in 1934 and continued publishing until Katayama’s death in 1938. This title differs from an English review of the same title (Japanese American Monthly Review), first published by Nichibei Shinbunsha in 1913.

『日米評論』は 以前『あめりか』を創刊した片山景雄(風雲)により1908年 に創刊された月刊雑誌である。 漢詩の掲載が特色だった。『日米評論』は三十周年記念号を1934年に発行、その後も片山が亡くなる1938年まで継続された。同題名の英語の月刊評論雑誌が日米新聞社から1913年に創刊されたが、これとは異なる。
