Vintage Post-War Japanese Pulp Cover




The title of this magazine not easy to translate, my source tells me. “Relaxation”, sort of, but implying gathering, or visiting. This is the May issue, in the very short history of this publication.

The magazine itself is an enigma. It was produced for maybe only one year, in the 1950s, then discontinued. The stories inside were about sex, crime, true confessions (which were usually about sex) and the description says it was a low-quality book printed on really cheap paper. Which was (and still is) true of a lot of pulp books and comics in Japan. If any bilingual readers recognize this vintage magazine, or can translate this better (the google translate version is too poor to include here) we’d be interested. On the web, my source found this.
