If you're at all interested in design, then the Japanese magazine Casa Brutus is going to be on your must-read list. Although usually all in Japanese, they do publish the occasional bilingual issue, with an English translation of the cover feature in the back. Last month (Vol. 59) was the case, with the beautifully photographed "My Home 2005" cover story. Covering recent Japanese homes designed by the likes of Tadao Ando (4 x 4 House II), Jun Aoki (G), and MIKAN (House in Uehara), it makes for a great guide to innovative modern residential architecture. You can purchase it through Amazon Japan (the order pages are available in English).
