This issue of the Japanese 'Magazine for City Boys' is a City Guide special edition which looks at the tropical Japanese prefecture Okinawa (itself made up of over 150 separate islands).
Inside, you'll find food, fashion and a thousand other bits and pieces to lose yourself in (even if you don't speak fluent Japanese).
According to the editors:
‘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.’
