Many information magazine for free, called "free paper" in Japan, are put on the corners of subway and railway stations. Some contain the information of hot restaurants and shops. Some are something of a small weekly magazine, covering all kind of news. Others contain full and part-time job information.

These kinds of free paper has been popular for the last few years because the contents has been getting better.

"R 25" in the photo, above all, is more popular and they will disappear very quickly as soon as they are published and put on magazine racks.

By the way, a free manga, cartoon, paper was published and distributed in front of Akihabara Station, famous for manga and computer, a few month ago. Tokyo seem to be manga paradise!!

It's so neat and clean. In NYC, they pass out free newspapers in the morning and people just throw the newspapers on the train and all over the station.
