On 17 October the Yomiuri Shimbun, one of Japan’s major national newspapers, published a profile of the London-based independent publisher Red Circle Authors, and the company’s launch series Red Circle Minis.

As one of Japan’s ‘five dailies’ that publish morning and evening editions in Tokyo and Osaka and other regional centres, the Yomiuri Shimbun can trace its origins back to 1874, making it one of Japan’s oldest newspapers. It has a combined daily circulation of 14 million, the largest in Japan.

The Yomiuri Shimbun has been a long-term supporter of Japanese fiction and creative writing. It regularly publishes serialised fiction and was the first newspaper in Japan to launch newspaper novels, Shimbun Shosetsu, in 1886.

Since 1949 it has also sponsored an important and prestigious literary award, the Yomiuri Prize, a prize won by highly regarded authors such as Haruki Murakami and Yukio Mishima (1925-1970).
