Metropolis
    ABC
     

In tough economic times it is difficult to know who to trust for your investment in advertising. Many magazines claim large circulations but METROPOLIS is the only English magazine in Japan with independent proof.

Many magazines claim 30,000 when in fact they may be distributing around 5,000. One even claims an outrageous 78,000 copies. If their numbers are true then why don;t they have ABC certification -- it only costs only ¥50,000 to register and ¥20,000 month.

Find out the facts. Only choose magazines with ABC certification.

Metropolis is Japan's No 1 English magazine - the only magazine that has its distribution of 30,000 copies independently verified by Japan's Audit Bureau of Circulations. The magazine is delivered to 100,000 readers over 600 points throughout Tokyo, Yokohama and Chiba.

Metropolis has 250 clients in each issue, the largest of any English magazine. Most Metropolis advertisers are long-term clients that started with small sizes, received good results and have upgraded their ad sizes.
