What is “WAttention”?
WAttention is a coined term containing “和 (wa)”, which, in Japanese, means “peace”, “calm” and “uniquely Japanese”, and the word “attention”. Since “wa” also has the connotation of ”link”, we gave our magazine the name in hopes of bringing more attention to “wa” and making a link between Japan and the world.
