◆ About the information magazine “Pia”
In July 1972, while a student at Chuo University, Hiroshi Youuchi, the president and representative director, started working with a friend who was working part-time at a television news station to create a monthly information magazine called Pia that covers entertainment information such as movies, plays, and concerts. ” was launched. As a “guidepost for culture and walking around the city,” it gained tremendous support from young people at the time. (Released on July 21, 2011, ceased publication after issue 1,341)
・Peak circulation: Approximately 1 million copies
・Monthly to biweekly to weekly

◆ Origin of the name “Pia”
When “Pia” was first published (1972), there was no such thing as an information magazine. “I didn’t want the image of miscellaneous things to be tied down to existing words,” so I chose a meaningless word for the magazine’s name. We chose this name because we want our readers to have a concrete meaning and image of the magazine in the future, when it becomes a magazine that will be accepted by many people.

◆ About Pia Corporation
Pia Co., Ltd. was established in 1974, two years after the publication of the information magazine “Pia”. Currently, the Pia Group regularly registers approximately 20,000 performances for music, sports, theater, movies, and various events, sells approximately 70 million tickets a year, and has over 17 million member organizations and approximately 30,000 members. Japan’s largest ticket agent with a sales network of 8,000 locations. In addition, we host and operate concerts and events, provide ticket sales solutions to halls, theaters, performance organizers, sports organizations, etc., publish publications and web media production in the leisure and entertainment field, and provide services for halls. We are engaged in a wide variety of businesses in the entertainment field, including
establishment and operation (Prime Market/Securities Code 4337). *About details about this release*
