Published in Tokyo, JapanToday is one of the top online sources for Japanese national and local news in English. The smartphone version of the site has pseudo continuously scrolling front page with over 80 headlines with thumbnails. Tapping a headline opens the full story.
There's also a legacy text only mobile site at www.japantoday.com/mobile (image). It's a paginated river of news style site consisting of the latest news headlines, 10 to a page. Clicking a headline opens a page with a text only version of the full story. Next and previous links let travel back in time to read older stories.
East Asian Times
The East Asian Times is a strange site. The top of each page carries a header image with the words "Ebeling Heffernan" which is the name of a financial analytics and consulting company specializing in Asian investments. I though it was an ad banner but clicking just goes to the East Asian Times home page.
The site's FAQ page refers to the site as The Phuket Sun with no mention the East Asian Times or Ebeling Heffernan.
Confusing branding aside, the site is a pretty good Asian news site that carries page after page of headline stories. The stories are are arranged chronologically and you can go back in time almost indefinitely,"river of news" style by clinking a "Next Page" link.
