Martha Stewart Weddings Japan

Quietly last summer, Martha Stewart Weddings launched a Japanese edition of its magazine. There have been three issues published so far, including a special celebratory launch issue that came out last fall. This is not the first time Martha Stewart has had a magazine published in Japan. In 2001, Martha Stewart Living formed Martha Stewart Japan Inc., a publishing group that created the first non-English version of Martha Stewart Living magazine. Issued 14 times over a two-year period in Japan, the magazine called simply Martha, ceased publication in 2002.
This is the cover of the second issue of Martha Stewart Weddings Japan, currently on newsstands there.
There have been two other issues published to date: the first issue, shown at left, and a special issue, shown at right.
The magazine uses mostly previously-published material with Japanese text, however there is some editorial content geared specifically to the Japanese market. Its website, too, is largely focused on Japan-specific content. To learn more about the many other international Martha Stewart publications, click here.
