Our Metropolis Summer Issue is out now! With the Tokyo Olympics almost here, we’re going beyond the gold medals and taking a wider look at how sport and healthy living shape and enrich the lives of local communities in Japan. From chatting with the country’s top athletes to meeting the local, English-friendly sports groups in Tokyo and exploring the hidden gems of the recently redeveloped Odaiba and Ariake (where 13 Olympics venues are located), this issue was created to help you keep your body and mind healthy and enjoy, connect with and celebrate the city we call home. 

If the stories in this issue are not enough Tokyo for you, follow us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook for the latest stories on life in the capital and culture in Japan.
