Our Metropolis Spring 2024 Issue is out now and the theme is Style!

As spring unfurls, Tokyoites cast off their winter layers and slip into the light fabrics of the season—so now is the perfect moment to delve into Tokyo’s latest trends. 2024 also marks a huge moment of celebration for Metropolis: our magazine’s 30th anniversary serving the international community.

Discover the creative force of new independent designers making waves in 2024. In this edition, acquaint yourself with Tokyo Clothes Swap, an internationally-minded group that’s passionate about eco-friendly fashion, alongside alt-fashion luminary RinRin Doll and longstanding Harajuku artist Minori.

We showcase local businesses here to help international residents, top spots for tourists to visit and much, much more in Metropolis Spring 2024.
