Ever since someone dumped a trove of old newspaper issues onto the Internet Archive in October 2021, I have been slowly translating and posting select articles to share my findings with the wider community. I am a US-educated Japanese person concerned about the spread of historical misinformation by Japanese far-right activists supporting revisionist and denialist viewpoints about the history of Imperial Japan, especially with respect to war crimes and atrocities. I hope that this blog will help combat historical misinformation about Imperial Japan on the Internet, and that professional historians will be inspired to start an online resource like this one, but on a much larger scale.

Thank you for your support. I hope that this blog will raise awareness about the wealth of information that the old Imperial Japanese newspapers contain.
