First Published in January 1994, the Philippine Digest (PD) Magazine in Japan created for the Filipinos living and working in Japan. Since then, it has been known as the top Filipino Magazine in Japan. In June 2010, the circulation of the Magazine goes to more than 600 distribution points all across the country.
The concept of the Magazine is to provide information, entertainment and education to Filipinos who are known to be hard workers in Japan. Articles include general interest stories, features of Filipinos living in Japan, information which can help Filipinos in their daily living, stories from the Philippines and recent articles about the favorite movie actors and actresses back home.
Over the years, PD has been trying to maintain the balance of information with useful entertainment for all its readers, and has become an important modem of information for communities and groups of Filipinos for their events and projects.
Currently, the PD is perfecting its web portal to serve more audience in the advent of the information age. It also mixing its service with other marketing projects further its reach with the Filipinos wherever they are in Japan.
Philippine Digest is part of IPC World Inc. leading company on media services for immigrant living in Japan since 1991.
