About

In 1902, Japanese immigrant Sometaro Sheba published the first newspaper on Kauaʻi. Based in Lihuʻe and appearing in two editions (English and Japanese), the Garden Island, has continued to cover life on Kauaʻi to the present day. In 1903, prominent Kauaʻi citizens Mason Fay Prosser, Edward DeLacy, Johan Ludvig V. Hjorth, and Frank Crawford formed a corporation to purchase the Garden Island. Sheba continued to serve as the publisher and editor, producing English and Japanese language editions until 1904, when the editions were separated into two. The Japanese edition became the Kauai Shinpo. The Garden Island was published weekly from 1902 to 1964, then switched to twice a week from 1964 to 1976, when it was published three times a week. Presently it appears daily.
