TOKYO – Filipino-Japanese Journal (FJJ), a platform for first-hand news, exclusive interviews and the best topics about Japan and the Philippines, is returning to paper with the release of their monthly print magazine on Nov. 2.
The comeback issue of the magazine focuses on championing Filipino representation in Japan via the four movies from the Philippines that will participate in this year’s Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF): “Gensan Punch”, “Arisaka”, “Payback” and “The Brokers”.
“During our print hiatus, we kept our website up-to-date by publishing news and information about Japan and the Philippines’ cooperation in responding to the novel coronavirus pandemic. We also kept our readers informed on COVID-19-related topics through our social media accounts,” Florenda Corpuz, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, said.
“We will continue our strong online presence, but we are also ecstatic to carry on with our print version,” she added.
Filipino-Japanese Journal is a publication of D&D Press Japan. Since its founding in February 2016, it has become an important source of news and information, particularly to Filipinos in Japan.
