CONNECT MAGAZINE Japan #55 December 2016

‘Tis the season to be a JET, fa la la la la, la la la la.

Happy holidays and cheers to everyone from around the world!

2016 is coming to a close, and CONNECT is here to help you through the chilly month and into the new year.

Plans for travel? Hermit-life under the kotatsu? Winter blues?

Not to worry, because our December issue is here to meet your needs.

We’ve got recommendations for anime, movies, and video games for those days when you just don’t want to trudge through a wall of snow, and a whole Calendar full of events for those days that you do.

Remember to take good care of yourself in the winter!

Yoga and meditation helps both the body and mind, or light jogging in the snow to catch your next train to warm your body.

Stay sane this month with our tips this holiday season.

“But what about after December?” you say? Fashion for the new year, new destinations, and…possibly more snow.

Climb on through with our feature on both mountain hiking and rock climbing for those adventurous thrill-seekers, or for those that just don’t want Halloween to end, curl up in the dark with some of our scary stories, submitted by readers like you!
