Last week, the MOTHER EARTH NEWS editorial team was delighted to welcome visitors from Japan to our offices in Topeka, Kan. Akiko and Terumasa came to Kansas to attend the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR the weekend of October 25 and 26, and then stayed to pay us a visit. For the past couple of years, Terumasa has been working with a team to translate MOTHER EARTH NEWS into Japanese. He has been providing translated PDFs, along with the print magazine copies in English, to subscribers in Japan.
We’re thrilled to have a partnership that brings the “Original Guide to Living Wisely” to like-minded sustainable-living, DIY enthusiasts in Japan. You can learn more about finding our magazine in Japan, and sign up for a translated subscription if you’d prefer to read the magazine in Japanese, at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS: Japan website. Thanks for the visit and the great work, Terumasa and Akiko!
