Quick Japan Magazine Vol. 107

Quick Japan magazine

Quick Japan magazine is a youth culture magazine that comes out on bi-monthly basis. The magazine features lots of articles on the music scene in Japan and the whole magazine, which resembles the looks of a book, is in Japanese.

whysojapan_quick_japan magazine_kyary_pamyu_pamyu_1The main reason why I bought the magazine was because Quick Japan Vol. 107 had a huge feature on the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu 2013 tour she did in Europe, with a loads of great photos from the tour, and pictures of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu walking around the streets of Paris while fiming a part of her TV show “TV John”.

So if you’re a Kyary Pamyu Pamyu fan, this a great magazine to add to your collection! I purchased my copy online from cdjapan for 900yen, plus postage.

I also see now thats there’s an app in the Japanese iTunes app store where you can buy the magazine from as well.

Here below are a couple of the pages that can be found in this issue of Quick Japan.
