Trans-Pacific Online

Launched in Tokyo in 1919 as the flagship of the Japan-America Association by Benjamin Fleisher (1870-1946), publisher of the Japan Advertiser, the Trans-Pacific began with a mission to stimulate US-Japan amity. Published monthly, then weekly, and sharing editorial and corporate resources with the Japan Advertiser, the Trans-Pacific soon became that newspaper’s de facto weekly edition, serving up a heady mix of political, cultural and commercial news to forward-looking Japanese and western readerships. A victim of its own success, the Trans-Pacific was bought out by the Japan Times in December 1940, ending its brief but distinguished career in uneasy partnership with the Japan Times Weekly.
