The September issue marks a new year for Connect after our Tokyo Orientation special edition.

We return to great stories and photos of the community in Japan. We’ve also tuned up the design for easy reading on your computer, smartphone, or any mobile device.

Open it up for a look through Japan’s days of fashion past, summer’s important news, comparisons of Japan and America’s New Wave movement, tips for cooking in a Japanese kitchen, sports tournaments throughout the country, and an all new Spotlight section chock-full of awesome people.

We’re always on the lookout for great insights and experiences to share with the community, and we’re always listening to your comments and questions.
