ハワイと日本を結ぶ「ハワイ報知」 Hawaii-Hochi, Connecting between Japan and Hawaii


ハワイと日本を結ぶ「ハワイ報知」 Hawaii-Hochi, Connecting between Japan and Hawaii


The Hawai Hochi is the only daily Japanese paper in the state of Hawaii, Founded in December, 1912 by Kinzaburo Makino, it continues to serve the Japanese-speaking community in the 50th state.
In the first issue of his paper he setout its principles. They included the promotion of the intereste of Japan in the Territory, to help to develop their American children into patriotic citizens to strengthen Japan-Hawaii ties, and to act as an impartial mediater between Japanese and japanese, and Japanese and other.
Following World WarII and the death of Makino in 1953, the newspaper was purchased by the late Konosuke Oishi, owner of the 'Shizuoka Simbun',in 1964.
The purchase enabled investments in plant and modernization of equipment, beginning with the purchase of web offset press in 1968.
A new building was completed in time for the paper's 60th anniversary in 1972.
Under Paul S Yempuku, President and publisher since 1967, the Hochi has become a major printing firm, and publications have expanded beyond the Japanese daily to include the bimonthly English language 'Hawaii Herald' four tourist publications, the monthly Japanese language business paper, 'Island Trend', and Yearbook.
The daily newspaper has a continuing important role as the medium of communication to the large Japanese-speaking population in the state of Hawaii.
