As the cover suggests, the February issue does feature articles about those warm fuzzy feelings of love.

We discover readers’ favorite romantic spots in Japan, assure you that giri-choco isn’t all that bad, and look behind the science of attraction. However, the issue isn’t purely Valentine’s-focused!

We also have an in-depth look at the ‘tradition’ of Japanese unpaid overtime, a CrossConnect review of Sukiyabashi Jiro, and an interview with Ben Martin, author of the Samurai Awakening series of novels.

Find these features, Spotlights, editorials, photos, haiku and more inside the pages of the February edition!
