Newspark enables visitors to not only learn about the role of newspapers and journalism through historical materials and interactive exhibitions, but also take in the importance of verified information and get to know the thoughts of newspaper reporters behind the articles they wrote.
Newspark (Japan Newspaper Museum), operated by the Japan Newspaper Publishers & Editors Association, is a museum of information and newspapers located in Yokohama, the birthplace of Japan’s first daily newspaper. Today, the rapid spread of digitalization generates huge amounts of information, so it is more important than ever for us to have a discerning eye for evaluating it. Throughout the long history of newspapers, publishers and editors have strived to provide reliable information. We hope that Newspark’s exhibits will help visitors think of the information society as well as the role of newspapers and journalism.
