POPEYE Issue 805
What is POPEYE magazine?
POPEYE magazine is the “Magazine for City Boys”. The founders printed this on the cover of the magazine when it debuted in 1976. What’s a “city boy”? The term doesn’t appear in the dictionary and no expert panel could define it. So we felt we should explore every aspect of what this “city boy” might be. After decades of debate, it still makes for a topic of lively discussion. It can be a style or a way of thinking. To get an idea of what makes a city boy, read POPEYE magazine.

It’s easy to suggest where to go and what to see in Tokyo. I can think of many ways to categorize them, and there’s no problem listing them up. But the more I know about the city, the less comfortable I feel to fit them into a typical recognition. Why don’t we forget about “Iki” (chic) for a moment? This edition of “Tokyo ‘14” consists of the shops, places and people we wish to support from the bottom of our hearts. Thus, the City Boys Encyclopedia of Tokyo. Topics of 70 or so are listed in order of Japanese alphabets “a” to “wa” and it will hopefully give you the leads to newer and deeper sides of Tokyo. It is no longer a harmonious place for you.
