ASAHI GRAPH, Japan
Asahi Graph (アサヒグラフ Asahi Gurafu), also known as The Asahi Picture News, was a Japanese weekly pictorial magazine that ran from 1923 until 2000.
Asahi Graph started on 25 January 1923 as a daily feature from Asahi Shinbunsha (publisher of Asahi Shinbun and soon also of Asahi Camera); this ran until 1 September 1923 when it was stopped by the major earthquake in Tokyo. It was back as a weekly from 14 November.
Asahi Graph survived World War II and reemerged as something of a Japanese equivalent of the US magazine Life. (Mainichi Graph, from Asahi's rival Mainichi Shinbunsha, was similar.) The last regular issue of the magazine is dated 13 October 2000.
