The Weekly Cultural News is an alternative publication in place of the Monthly Cultural News (1998-2020) which was suspended in April 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since the 1980s, Japanese culture has become very popular in the U.S. Sushi, Japanese cuisine, Anime and related products have also become big business.

As a result of this expansion of Japan-related news, products and events, publications and information of many kinds dealing with Japanese cuisine and Anime have flooded into the Los Angeles market.

Throughout the continent of the U.S., Los Angeles is considered the capital of Japanese culture because of the concentration in the region of native-born Japanese, Japanese Americans and Americans who have diverse kinds of associations with Japan.

Therefore, it is no surprise that from Santa Barbara to San Diego, numerous organizations and associations for the promotion of Japanese culture have been established.

Cultural News was born in 1998 to review and promote those numerous Japanese cultural events that take place in Southern California and also outside the region. In that regard, Cultural News is considered the most comprehensive source of information regarding Japanese art and cultural events. (Shige Higashi, Cultural News Editor)
