Miss PingMag? Looking at the amazing number of comments following the announcement of the site’s closing, I think quite a few of you do. And this is where Nipponscape comes in. Launched earlier this week, it marks the start of a new project by a few of my former PingMag colleagues: Takafumi Suzuki, Soyuzno, Claire Tanaka, and Yoshihiko Mano. Together with a host of other contributors, they’ve launched not just a new online magazine that acts as a spiritual follow-up to PingMag and PingMag MAKE (Takafumi was the editor of the latter), but also a production team — for more on that, be sure to read the site’s “About” page.
