Tokion was a Japanese-based magazine covering art, fashion and film first published in Japan in 1996, followed by United States, UK, Hong Kong editions. The magazine's makers produced the annual Creativity Now Conference, a weekend-long seminar of panel discussions with speakers from across the creative spectrum; the magazine was started in 1996 by Lucas Badtke-Berkow and Adam Glickman, two American expatriates living in Japan, as a cultural bridge between Japan and the United States. In 1998, Tokion opened an American office in Los Angeles. In 2000 it moved into a retail space/office in New York City, while maintaining a retail space/office in Tokyo. While in New York, the magazine's focus shifted from Japanese-influenced content to street culture aesthetics and to a more global arts magazine featuring interviews with recognized artists such as Lou Reed, Richard Prince, James Brown, Francesco Clemente, Roger Corman, Ed Ruscha and Jeff Koons, while continuing to cover up-and-coming artists such as Harmony Korine, Miranda July, Cory Arcangel and Simone Shubuck.

Castlereagh (County Down townland)

Castlereagh is a townland and former hamlet in the civil parish of Knockbreda, barony of Castlereagh Lower, in County Down, Northern Ireland. It is now at the fringe of the city's suburbs; the townland has an area of 415 acres. About 1350, at the site of a rath in the Castlereagh Hills, Aodh Flann O’Neill is said to have built the castle from which the townland was named. Aodh was of a branch of the O'Neill dynasty who colonised the area from the west. Con MacShane O'Neill raided Belfast from the castle after Christmas 1602, leading to retributions from the Elizabethan settlers there. In 1615, he was reduced to selling the manor comprising the castle and grounds to Moyses Hill, ancestor of the Marquesses of Downshire, who still exercised jurisdiction there in the 1840s; the castle was ruined by the 1750s. Castlereagh Presbyterian Church was founded in 1650, with a building on Church Road from 1720, the present one built in 1835; the title of Viscount Castlereagh was created in 1795 for Baron Londonderry.

Population of townlands was published at censuses from 1841 to 1926. The manor of Castlereagh gave its name to the barony of Castlereagh split into Castlereagh Upper and Castlereagh Lower. Under the Irish Poor Laws, Castlereagh townland gave its name to the surrounding Castlereagh electoral division within the Belfast poor law union. After the Local Government Act 1898, the County Down portion of the union became the Belfast No. 2 rural district renamed Castlereagh rural district. The Local Government Act 1971 specified Castlereagh DED as the nucleus of one of the 26 new local government districts, which thus was named Castlereagh district.
