Yamato Shinbun Masthead

The Yamato Shinbun succeeded the Yamato in August 1896 and was published by Hamon Mizuno three times a week. The newspaper featured advertisements of Japanese businesses on the front page, followed by local and world news and practical information relevant to the Japanese community in Hawaii. It was initially printed on a lithograph machine until 1898 when the publisher introduced a typeset. The newspaper became daily in 1902 and Yasutarō Sōga acquired the press in 1905. The tile was renamed to the Nippu Jiji in 1906.

『やまと新聞』は 『やまと』の後継紙で、水野波門により1896年8月に創刊された。週三回の発行で、最初は石版刷りだったが、1898年から活版になった。第一面には日本人の店などの広告が掲載され、その他の紙面ではハワイの日本人コミュニティーに関連のある地元、世界ニュースや実用的な情報が提供された。1902年には日刊紙になり、相賀安太郎が1905年に購入、1906年には『日布時事』に改題された。
