POPEYE magazine is the 'Magazine for City Boys'. The founders printed this on the cover of the magazine when it debuted in 1976. What’s a 'city boy'? The term doesn’t appear in the dictionary and no expert panel could define it. So we felt we should explore every aspect of what this 'city boy' might be. After decades of debate, it still makes for a topic of lively discussion. It can be a style or a way of thinking. To get an idea of what makes a city boy, read POPEYE magazine.
Although Tokyo is well known as a city where you can literally get anything, it is also there for the daily lives of its citizens. Places which people casually pop in after work, to go and dine or to go shopping to buy flowers to take home. Those stores are not necessarily fancy and famous, but they are very necessary as they are a part of the daily lives of the ordinary people. We find having these kinds of places is a little piece of happiness, which tends to go unnoticed.
As you know, it's not a perfect time for sight-seeing, so why don’t you change your perspective and try to explore the city from the perspective of the common people who work, study and live in Tokyo. This issue is all about Tokyo, but we believe you can apply this approach to your own life, you may find something new in things you’d never considered, or things that might have been hidden by prejudices.
