Community Newspaper
For nearly a century, Yawatahama Shimbun reported local news in the small town of Yawatahama in southern Japan. The paper was produced by a husband-and-wife team, who worked as reporter and layout designer. Residents of the town loved its richly informative articles, considering them an essential part of their lives. But the couple eventually decided to bring the paper's long history to an end. The program follows their one-month journey to the final day of the small newspaper company, which they had lovingly kept alive over many years.
