The Journal The Authority on Global Business in Japan

Since the publication of its first issue on July 8, 1889, The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) has been a cornerstone of business journalism. While media has since changed drastically, the relevance of the WSJ remains steadfast.

As a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ), you can now receive complimentary access to a PDF version of the WSJ’s Asia edition Monday through Friday for one year.

A big reason that WSJ plays such an important role in the business community is that, even amid all the noise of today’s media, it remains highly relevant. As the WSJ’s International Managing Director Jonathan Wright explained: “Though the number of news sources is endless, the need for trusted, accurate, and timely information has never been greater. The Wall Street Journal offers information that is essential for business leaders as they make decisions on strategy and personal finance. When so much is on the line, it doesn’t make sense to settle for second-best.”

Another exciting recent development is that the ACCJ’s monthly magazine, The Journal—known as “The authority on global business in Japan”—will now be distributed in Central Tokyo over the next 18 months, inserted in The Wall Street Journal.

Simon Farrell, publisher at Tokyo-based Custom Media KK, the award-winning creative media agency that produces The Journal, said: “Despite being entirely independent of each other, both The Journal and The Wall Street Journal practice high editorial standards of objectivity and accuracy to provide readers with excellent content. Both parties are delighted to be associated with each other through this partnership.”

This new alliance includes expanded reach for ACCJ communications as well. “Not only do ACCJ members get access to the WSJ’s premium content, but the ACCJ benefits as a whole, given this new association with one of the world’s most prestigious media outlets,” explained ACCJ Vice President–Tokyo Jonathan Kushner.
