Silangan Shimbun

Silangan Shimbun is a monthly publication of Silangan Communications, a Filipino-owned company based in Japan. Predominantly written in the Filipino language, the paper provides news and  information from our own pool of writers and contributors based in the Philippines, Japan, Singapore and Australia. Silangan also avails of the feed service of Reuters and the Philippines News Agency. Its first issue came out in August 1999, catering mainly to the Filipino community in Japan.
