Demons out, luck in! Happy February!

It’s back to full-size for this issue, and there’s lots of content to keep you busy at your desk or under your kotatsu.

We have three useful guides for you, including DIY facial treatments, choosing the right low-cost carrier at Japanese airports, and getting out in the snow for some boarding or skiing!

For interesting articles, we have some great features on 20th-century Japanese fashion, modern Noh theater, and gorgeous photos of Okinawa’s easternmost island.

We also speak with Wesley Julian, documentary director working to support Tohoku, and compare the films Battle Royale and The Breakfast Club (really!).

There’s bound to be something for everyone to read this month, so we hope you enjoy!
