Metropolis was founded in 1994 as Tokyo Classified, a compendium of casual and professional English-language ads distributed with the Daily Yomiuri newspaper. Rebranded as Metropolis in 2001, the magazine is now independently owned by Japan Partnership Holdings Inc., with approximately 30,000 copies distributed to over 10,000 locations in the Kanto area (and beyond) quarterly. Boasting the largest distribution of any English-language magazine in Japan, we’re proud to say that Metropolis is one of the first sights to greet new arrivals at Narita Airport.
Japan’s No. 1 English Magazine
With a focus on upcoming events, exhibitions and news—including the city’s most complete events listing, Metropolis comprehensively documents what’s happening in the world’s greatest capital city.
Our flagship website and varied social media platforms track the best bars and restaurants, while our social events keep the Tokyo community connected, informed and energized. Our listings and classifieds offer a forum for corporate players and independent artists alike. Metropolis is Japan’s No. 1 English magazine covering the nation’s culture, art, fashion, entertainment and lifestyle for both local residents and aficionados abroad.
We’re also much more than a magazine. We’re a marketing and multimedia communications company dedicated to creating business partnerships between Japan and the world. Through our diverse services, including Augmented Reality Public Relations (AR PR), SNS, content creation, printing, events organizing, web design, translation and more, we help grow our business while servicing companies and individuals looking to expand theirs by promoting their products and services in Japan.
