Tourist brochure published by the Japanese inn, Hinomaru Ryokan, in Shanghai in the mid-1930s. The brochure is undated, but it appears to have been published sometime after the First Shanghai Incident in 1932. Hinomaru Ryokan was named in honour of the Japanese national flag which was, and is, commonly called Hinomaru in Japanese.

This interesting piece of Japanese Shanghai ephemera provides an outline of Shanghai and its Japanese community at a time when the Japanese residents numbered about 29,000. The inn promotes its convenient location within the Japanese community and reassures visitors that the Hinomaru Ryokan is a safe place to stay given is close proximity to approximately 2000 Japanese troops stationed at the Marine's quarters at the ready to protect the residents. It also advertises the free tours of the area it runs and states it is a designated place of accommodation by the Japanese Consulate, South Manchurian Railways, Manchukuo embassy and the Japanese Tourist Bureau. Additionally, the brochure lists the primary sights to be seen in Shanghai, Suzhou and Hangzhou, a 6-day sightseeing tour plan, and train, shipping and air schedules and prices.
