The Chunichi Shimbun (中日新聞 Chūnichi Shinbun?) is a Japanese daily "broadsheet" newspaper published in mostly Aichi Prefecture and neighboring regions by Chunichi Shimbun Co., Ltd (株式会社中日新聞社 Kabushiki-gaisha Chūnichi Shinbunsha?). It is the owner of the Chunichi Dragons baseball team, and is also known as the main organizer of a famous international gymnastics event, the Chunichi Cup. The newspaper is dominant in its region, having a market penetration approaching 60 percent of the population of Aichi Prefecture. The Chunichi Shimbun group also publishes the Tokyo Shimbun and the Chunichi Sports and Tokyo Chunichi Sports sports newspapers. The group’s combined circulation is more than 4 million, meaning it ranks fourth in Japan behind the Yomiuri Shimbun, the Asahi Shimbun and the Mainichi Shimbun.

The group has thirteen foreign bureaus. They are in New York, Washington D.C., London, Paris, Berlin, Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Seoul, Manila and Bangkok.
