Nihon Shūho

Nihon Shūho / 日本週報 [Japanese Weekly News], (Honolulu, HI)

Nihon Shūho Masthead

The Nihon Shūhō, first published in 1892 by Nihon Shūhōsha in Honolulu, was arguably the oldest Japanese newspaper in Hawaii. Bun’ichirō Onome, superintendent of the Immigration Bureau in Hawaii, was manager and editor and criticized the Immigration Bureau for exploiting Japanese government contract laborers. It was mimeographed and published weekly. After a few editions, it was succeeded by Hawai Shūhō (the Hawaii Weekly).

『日本週報』はホノルルの日本週報社 が1892年に創刊した、恐らくハワイで最も古い日本語新聞である。ハワイの移民局の監督官だった小野目文一郎が同紙の経営と編集に従事し、移民局が日本の官約移民を搾取していると非難した。ミメオグラフで毎週発行された。数号発行したのち、ハワイ週報(the Hawaii Weekly)に引き継がれた。
