Since 1994, Metropolis (formerly Tokyo Classified) has been a free magazine at the heart of Japan's international community. We’re so grateful for everyone who has supported us over these years, whether they’re locals picking up a copy or our thousands of readers who have now returned to their home countries and continue to follow us online. Being there for the community really is, and always has been, our top priority. Now, we’re asking for your support in return.

1994年の創刊以来、英字フリーペーパー「メトロポリス」は東京のインターナショナルコミュニティーを支える雑誌として活動してきました。日本に住んでいる人・既に母国に帰りオンラインで我々の活動をサポートしてくれている人・日本に訪れた旅行の際にメトロポリスを手にしてくれた人等、我々の読者は様々ですが、東京のインターナショナルコミュニティのために活動を続けることは常に我々の最優先事項でした。

As Japan’s number one English-language magazine, we’re proud to bring our readers regular news including film, art, fashion, literature, travel, events, architecture, music and advice for life in Japan. We also play a more vital role, bringing essential insights and features covering life-changing events such as the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in 2011 and, more recently, the coronavirus pandemic. In addition to creating this content, we have been using our platform to support local businesses during these difficult past months and providing news updates and advice for the international community about COVID-19 in Japan.

The financial strains due to COVID-19, in addition to the decline in the magazine industry, has, like for so many other businesses, been a struggle for us. In order for us to continue giving you quality, free content about Tokyo and Japan, which we love dearly, we would like to ask you for help through our crowdfunding page.

日本で一番の英語媒体として、旅行・アート・週末のイベント情報等毎日の生活に欠かせない最新のニュースのみならず、2011年の東日本大震災や新型コロナウイルス等の未曾有の災害の際にも読者の皆様が必要としている情報を提供し続けてきました。

多くの他のビジネス同様、出版業界も新型コロナウイルスによる打撃を受け、メトロポリスも苦しい状況を強いられています。これからも長きにわたり読者の皆様が必要とする情報を提供し続けられるよう、皆様のサポートをお願いしたく存じます。
