Ms. Hidemi Uchida, Editor in Chief, T Japan, said: “I am very excited to launch T Japan. With many readers here in Japan who are very familiar with fashion, culture, and above all lifestyle, this is the best timing for us to start a publication that combines intelligence and quality. Please look forward to T Japan where we will deliver today’s world from New York and today’s Japan all together in one new magazine.”
