Our editor Grace was on holiday in Japan when the stern, elderly woman on the cover of Tsurutokame caught her eye. Learning the unusual theme of the title — a style magazine for senior citizens in rural Japan — she knew this would be something Stack readers would get excited about.


After much effort tracking down publisher Mizuki Nagashima, we shipped 100 copies to the UK and we’re very excited to be offering them to Western readers for the first time — as far as we know we’re the only retailer in Europe with copies of this brilliant magazine.


Blending humour with affection, this magazine has supremely good photography, colourful, vibrant graphic design, and intimate accounts of the lives of the elderly that leaves us even more obsessed with Japan.


Note: this magazine is published in Japanese


In this issue:


  • Senior Cars: mobility scooters or low-riders?
  • A directory of popular second-hand stores frequented by elderly sartorialists
  • Fabric sampling: taking inspiration from the clothing of senior citizens, designers create high street items like the bucket hat using the same material
  • “What will you buy with the pocket money from the grandparents?”
  • And comics, collages, onsen trips, hospital visits, and much more
