The high profile bi-weekly lifestyle magazine, published by Magazine House, was founded in 1977 and is one of Japan’s best-known magazines targeting women in the 30-50 age range.
Mitsuyo Kakuta, known for her bestselling novel The Eighth Day and having written more than 80 works of fiction, is featured on the cover and in a two page spread.
The magazine, named after the French pastry, reportedly has a circulation of 400,000. One third of its readers are married women and surprisingly 10 percent men. The special issue was published in March and can be purchased from the publisher’s website.
