RocketNews24 is a popular website that enjoys a high rate of sharing among Japanese social networking site users. Contents tend to lean towards entertainment, but by also including hard news and other related issues, we arouse journalistic debate in a paradoxical manner.

‘RocketNews24 is a news website dealing with strange, interesting news and happenings on the Internet, etc., both in Japan and abroad. In particular, we publish news that people are likely to share on social networking sites.’
‘Our news sources not only include online materials, but also features on-the-ground research, primarily in Japan and other Asian countries. We place emphasis on giving the reader that unique feeling of actually being on the spot. In this kind of reporting, our journalists are more likely to appear in front of the camera.’
