This is the cover of the first issue that was released in January, 2002. One interesting feature is that the magazine opens from what we consider to be the back cover. In other words, the back cover is actually the front cover of "Martha."
Inside the first issue is a six-page spread introducing readers to Martha Stewart with a biography and photographs of Martha through the ages.
The magazine is written almost entirely in Japanese, with some English highlights. Most of the features have been published before in the English edition of "Living" but are translated into Japanese and laid out differently on the pages. There are some original features, including articles on traditional Japanese crafts and cuisine.
