Japan: Asahi's English Daily to become Electronic Only

Andy Sharp at the Diplomat's Tokyo Notes reports that the print version of Asahi Shimbun’s printed English-language daily will be discontinued next February and become electronic only. This leaves two printed English-language dailies in Japan, and Sharp notes “given their precarious positions, it would not come as a shock if, five years from now, the only English-language Japanese dailies read on Tokyo’s commuter trains will be constituted of electronic ink.” Ken Doctor also blogged about it as part of a growing trend, which blogger takosaburou has translated [ja] into Japanese.
