Our Metropolis Autumn Issue 2022 is out now! In this issue, we asked our writers to show us examples of love in the city and across Japan. From the hand-dug caves of Tochigi’s sake masters to the mountain trails a train ride away from Tokyo, discover this issue’s stories by picking up a magazine copy around Tokyo (locations in the link below) online.
