It seems progress and the lack of Japanese reading skills killed this paper. It is not surprising that progress has killed many papers around the world. It is sad that skills in Japanese language have been lost in the expat community.

Interestingly there is a newspaper in Hawaii, The Hawaii Hochi and also in other parts of the USA where the older local population as well as the frequent Japanese visitors "use" those papers to "promote" their businesses and themselves in the local Japanese community. The local High School and college students also use those papers to study Japanese and "compare" the contents with English language publications to see the differences in "perspectives" and to share cultures because it also contains local community news not covered by English papers.

Hopefully some entrepreneur would keep a smaller publication in Japanese going in Brazil.

How useful is knowing Japanese in Brazil?

Portuguese is a language more widely spoken and by more people than Japanese.

The newspaper is closing because it can’t make a profit....
