Japan's first and oldest English-language newspaper to date. Translated into English, the newspaper's name means «Time of Japan». The publisher of the newspaper «The Japan Times, Ltd.», itself belongs to the company «Nifco», a major manufacturer of automotive interiors. Interestingly, The Japan Times was created in 1897 not as a «newspaper for foreigners», but as a «newspaper for Japanese», offering them an overview of local and world events in English. In 1918, it merged with The Japan Mail and was published as «The Japan Times and Mail» until 1940.

Until 1933, it maintained an independent political line, but in wartime it was forced to become a propaganda bulletin of the imperialist government. In the period from 1940-1943, it was called «The Japan Times and Advertiser» (1940-1943) after merging with «The Japan Advertiser», and from 1943 to 1956 was known as «The Nippon Times» (1943-1956), after which the newspaper was returned to its original name.

In 1983, the newspaper came under the control of «Nifco», which owned the publication until 2017. Today, the newspaper is owned by «News2u Holdings, Inc». Under her leadership, the newspaper has become a critical and oppositional daily that does not hesitate to speak out even against the official government.

The main sections of the newspaper are: News (Local and International News), Opinion (Analytics), Life (lifestyle, personalities, food and drink, travel, language, technology), Community (calendar of events, poster, commune, official messages), Culture (culture, art, film, television, theater, exhibitions), Sports, City Guide (a tourist's guide to Japan, a directory of restaurants and hotels, useful tips and addresses).
