Subscribe to Metropolis Magazine
Metropolis is a weekly English magazine about events and activities in Tokyo. It also includes restaurant and bar reviews and a lead story that gives a good sense of what Tokyo and Japan are all about. You can get copies of Metropolis for free at Tsukuba Information Center, but if you aren’t likely to stop by the Information Center on a regular basis, you might want to consider subscribing instead.
There is a subscription form available on the Metropolis website. You can also subscribe by fax if you print out the form on the same page. You can choose three different subscription terms.
- 12 Issues – ¥4,000
- 24 Issues – ¥7,500
- 48 Issues – ¥14,000
Your subscription will be complete when you send your money (by furikomi) to the Crosscross bank account. (Crisscross is the company that owns Metropolis.) Their account is with the Kojimachi Branch of Mizuho Bank. To help you with the furikomi, here are the kanji you need.
If you like to keep up with what is happening in Tokyo and Japan, I highly recommend getting a subscription to this magazine.
