Governor of Tokyo Yuriko Koike Appears in Cover of Magazine
The Governor of Tokyo, Yuriko Koike, is making the cover page of Tokyo Walker magazine, featured here on the 1000th memorial volume. Tokyo Walker is a magazine that lists primarily featuring entertainment informations including popular sights, events, and restaurants and so on. Tokyo Walker magazine was established in 1990 by a major publisher, Kadokawa, and this year marked the 28th anniversary. Usually the cover was featured solely by entertainers, and it is extremely rare for a politician to appear on the cover of Tokyo Walker. As the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics are going to be held in three years, it seems that Tokyo Walker and the Tokyo Metropolitan government share a common interest to feature the games in the magazine.
In the 1000th volume which came out on August 20th, 2017, features the interview with Governor Koike where she talks about the charms of Tokyo and her vision of the city, that she is proud to share with the world.
