Historyedit

The magazine was first published in 1994 as the Tokyo Classified Early editions, in the broadsheet style, consisted of classified advertisements sourced from shop notice boards3 Initially distributed with the Daily Yomiuri, the publisher created an independent distribution network after the newspaper censored advertisements it found objectionable The magazine is distributed to companies, embassies, hotels, bars, and restaurants4 The magazine was originally owned and operated by Mark and Mary Devlin, renamed Metropolis in 2001, and sold to Japan Inc Holdings in 20072

Since 1999 the magazine hosted an annual Halloween party "Glitterball" at Roppongi's Velfarre club, and now that Velfarre is defunct, at other notable clubs around Tokyo Between 2003 and 2010, Metropolis donated some of the profits each year to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Japan and the YMCA5
