Student Activism and Women’s Rights in Japan | webinar

SPRING 2021 Zine

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!
