We at Uprizine cover a whole bunch of issues like gender, health, mental health, sexual misconduct, and more right here in the heart of Tokyo. Our diverse team aims to raise awareness on such issues through writing, the arts, as well as community building and empowerment.

Check out some of our latest articles below!

Currently, we are working on translating articles from the past into Japanese so that our content is more accessible to our Japanese audience. But with all our translators being hardworking, full time students, it takes a bit quite of time! If you're interested in helping us translate our articles and speed up the translation process please contact us through our contact form! ♡

We also feature artists, artwork, creative writing (poetry and prose).

Show us your work and maybe we'll feature you!



UPRIZINE was founded in 2017, aiming to create conversation and raise awareness surrounding intersectional issues at Temple University Japan through opinion pieces, creative writing, and occasionally, informative journalism. It is run by students and for students, through the TUJ Zine Club.

Translation Note: 

Because our site is translated by our members/students, we are not able to translate all contents at this time. However we will do our best to make the site's basic features available in both English and Japanese.
