My New Favorite Print Mag in Japan

The Thinking Person: plain living & high thinking. The winter issue has much to be admired including an article on the preparation of a kind of snake soup (イラブー汁) in Okinawa; an Estonian Travelogue; a series of essays on 20th century Japanese mountaineers with some remarkable black and white  photographs; oh man, over 265 pages; even some manga in there and a reflection on Susan Sontag.

I'll have to do a lot of plain living to plow through all those pages. I guess I'll start with the pictures and manga and work my way up to the high-thinking pieces. With any luck I'll be done by spring in time for No. 40.
