There are a lot of fashion magazines and fashions in Japan. There are magazines and fashions that we were not able to introduce here, too. Fashion magazines are published according to the age and the style of readers. We can choose the magazine showing the fashions that we like. I think that is great.
Then, how to do make-up, love features, fortune-telling features, and young people's information, etc., are published in the magazine. The magazine is necessary for us!
