Whatever youโ€™re celebrating, hereโ€™s our gift to you – the December issue!

Inside this month youโ€™ll find all the latest on news, local events and entertainment releases.

Weโ€™re keeping it festive this winter with a glance into New Year Osechi cuisine.

Feeling like all you wanna do is be a blanket caterpillar? Try our 5 minute ceviche recipe! Stomach satisfaction guaranteed, and no need to worry about post-conbini guilt!

Last minute planning a winter adventure? This month our travel section zooms in on the highlights of rural Takayama, and features a hand-picked itinerary for fans of haiku poet Basho.

Keeping it close to home doesnโ€™t have to make for a quiet vacation, though – flick through our sports section to discover how one JET found community and cardio through Taiko drumming, and turn to the community pages for a new perspective – this month: one JET battles her BOE for childcare leave.

Stay warm, stay in the know, and have a wonderful end to 2017!
