Navigation Search is a useful interface that enables the user to conduct searches simply by selecting items by genre.

Search Mode

You can choose from three different modes: "Simple Search," "Detailed Search," and "Navigation Search."
The "Simple Search" screen is displayed at first (in the initial settings). But if you click on the radio button for "Navigation Search," you'll see a display of 15 genres, such as "天声人語・オピニオン"(Tensei Jingo / Opinion), "時事に強くなる" (Brush up on Current Affairs), and "教育・科学・環境" (Education / Science / Environment). After choosing one, if you click on a section title on the right, a list of articles will be displayed.
If you choose the genre "全国ふるさと記事" (Local Articles around Japan), you can display only the regional edition for each prefecture. (*There is no regional edition for Okinawa prefecture.)

Latest Issue Search

It is possible to search only the latest editions of the ‘Morning Edition (National Edition)’, ‘Evening Edition (National Edition)’, ‘AERA’ and ‘Shukan Asahi’.
The ‘Morning Edition (National Edition)’ can be searched and displayed from around 6 a.m. on the day it is published by the Tokyo headquarters. The ‘Evening Edition (National Edition)’ can be searched and displayed from around 5:30 p.m.
For recording reasons, articles from the latest edition of ‘AERA’ and the ‘Shukan Asahi’ can be searched and displayed, one week after publication.

Date of Issue

The default setting is that 'Whole period' is checked, with the search being performed in articles of the Asahi Shimbun from August 1984 and Asahi Shimbun Digital, and ‘AERA’ and ‘Shukan Asahi’ from the start of their storage periods.
The past '3 months', '6 months' or 'past year' can be specified.


The regular columns, other columns, and most of the regular series that appear in the main edition from the Asahi Shimbun Tokyo head office are divided into 15 different genres. Columns appearing in papers other than the main edition from the Tokyo head office, as well as columns appearing in "AERA" and "Shukan Asahi," are not included.


You could arrange the sequence of the headlines. The original setting is the newest article to be shown on the top of the list. You could either choose the original setting or list the oldest headline available on the top of of the list.
