Our Metropolis Winter Issue 2021 is out now! This issue, we highlight the astounding diversity and talent of Japan’s creators. From YouTubers to pro-gamers, artists, musicians, chefs and activists, we take a look at how these influencers are shaping Japan’s creative landscape and inspiring their global communities. Plus, we round up some of the top volunteer groups to get involved with this festive season, new Japan-based music and much, much more. Find a copy around Tokyo (locations below) or read it online.
