Thailand’s Prime Minister, Yingluck, made the cover of a prominent Japanese weekly magazing, Aera, reported Matichon, a Thai newspaper. Aera is a Japanese weekly magazine, printed in gravure, published by the Asahi Shimbun. The magazine combines photographs and news stories. The cover story is called Person in Focus. Eiichirō Sakata takes cover photos for Aera, but when the person on the cover is a photographer, it is a self-portrait. The title AERA is derived from the Latin word that means “era” in English, and a backronym said to mean “Asahi Shimbun Extra Research and Analysis.” The Asahi is one of the five national newspapers in Japan. Its circulation, which was 7.96 million for its morning edition and 3.1 million for its evening edition as of June 2010, was second behind that of Yomiuri Shimbun. The company has its registered headquarters in Osaka.
