To get here, you will need to go on The Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line (東京湾アクアライン), also known as the Trans-Tokyo Bay Highway. It is a bridge–tunnel combination across Tokyo Bay in Japan.

Ok i admit, i picked it up for the following reasons
1. The paul and joe pouch
2. Eddie Peng on the cover [i didnt know who he was but a friend of mine is a HUGE fan and asked me to bring this back for her. She let me keep the pouch XD]

Since she wanted me to keep the magazine in fairly pristine condition, i only took 2 pics from the magazine [sorry!]
