Time Out Tokyo magazine launch

Free English-language magazine: Tokyo's magnetic appeal condensed into 84 rich pages

Time Out Tokyo magazine launch

Now, by popular demand, and building on the success of our city guides and website, Time Out Tokyo presents the first issue of our magazine! Tokyo's own local experts have unearthed the city's diverse attractions; now they will be transmitted to the world through Time Out’s global network. In Tokyo, the magazine is geared to tourists and expats, and is distributed free of charge at 300 locations - primarily airports, train stations and hotels.

The unique qualities of Tokyo will be boldly showcased in this special first issue. The theme for the issue is '50 Reasons Tokyo is the Greatest City in the World'. Time Out has already expanded to cover 40 cities in 35 countries, and has earned tremendous trust around the world. Now, we will reveal the many attractive places that are just waiting to be discovered in every corner of Tokyo.

Time Out has elicited comments about Tokyo's appeal from Naoki Inose, the metropolitan governor, and from Yuki Ota, the athlete who won a silver medal in fencing at the London Olympics. The special first issue will also include a feature on the ongoing photographic art project 'They Shoot Tokyo', produced by Tokyo-Ga and featuring 100 Japanese and foreign photographers, including the renowned Daido Moriyama. The magazine's special feature article will introduce readers to unique expressions of Tokyo as seen through the eyes of 25 of these photographers. 

Time Out Tokyo magazine will also feature high quality, detailed, up-to-date information that can only be obtained by local experts who are intimately familiar with the city. This info has been prepared with a global readership in mind, and will be presented in a satisfyingly thick volume of 84 pages. Get your copy now!
