Strapped for cash? Our autumn issue is here to help


Low on money after a wild summer? We’ve all been there, but a temporary dip in your bank balance is no excuse not to enjoy Tokyo to the fullest. In our autumn issue, on shelf from September 30, we've embraced our inner penny-pinchers, gone out and scoured the capital for cheap but amazing things to do, eat, drink, buy and see.

Great-value meals, shopping bargains, secret museums, drink deals and family fun – it's all in our guide to Tokyo on the cheap. And if you need a pick-me-up after all that prudence, make sure to also check out our feature on the best coffee in Tokyo, complete with a handy map.

In addition, we reveal the history behind the Japanese 'souvenir jacket', highlight five electronic music artists to watch, hop on some of the country's finest sightseeing trains and drink our way around the capital's top liquor stores. For all this and more, pick up your free copy at any of our distribution points in the city, download the PDF version here or get the mag delivered by placing an order here.
