Japanese newspapers joint-website goes live

Japan’s Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Asahi Shimbun and Yomiuri Shimbun papers are pooling their resources on a new website that will feature news and editorials from the three rivals side-by-side.

The idea behind the Aratanisu site, according to a release on the Yomiuri site, will let readers ‘rediscover the differences in coverage and editorial stance of the three leading papers’.

The site aims to attract 4 million page views per month intially, The Japan Times reports, and become profitable by its third year. English-language content could also feature on the site in the future, the Times writes.
