Major Contents of the Nikkei

Best Format for Effectively Communicating Information
The single constant focus of the Nikkei is the economy, but to respond to the diversified information needs of readers, it also covers sports, culture and daily life. Along with these regular articles, there is an additional supplement on Saturdays (NIKKEI Plus 1) as well as a monthly magazine supplement (THE NIKKEI MAGAZINE), both offering extensive coverage on topics closely related to lifestyle and cultural interests.
The Nikkei Morning Edition
  The Nikkei’s morning edition provides a broad range of information, laid out in a clear, functional manner.

The front page’s lead articles communicate the day’s major news from an economic viewpoint. Front-page articles in the Nikkei also have a strong impact on business, industry and the markets. The front page is where the Nikkei’s unique perspective is most evident.

    3) Table of contents

The Nikkei’s table of contents gives a brief summary of five major news stories of the day.

    4) Tokyo markets

Gives the previous day’s prices for the Nikkei Stock Average, currency exchange rates and long-term interest rates.

    5) Series articles

The upper left-hand corner of the front page often features series articles giving in-depth coverage of everyday topics. Series articles like these, which examine serious themes head-on at much greater length than is possible in a single article, are a favorite with the Nikkei readers.
