Our Metropolis Spring Issue 2023 is out now! This season’s theme is centered around cycles, and their importance in both Japan’s rich cultural heritage and its unfolding future. From the sacred rebuilding of Ise Shrine, which honors the cyclical relationship between man and nature, to the revival of the traditional sento thanks to Tokyo’s latest youth trends, this edition invites you to join us in exploring what’s new, what’s old, and what’s wonderfully both. Read this issue’s stories by picking up a magazine copy around Tokyo (locations below) or online.
