Are you looking for a websiste in Japan that sells japanese magazine subscriptions to people in Japan?

I've never heard of such online services because for the people living in Japan has easy access to Japanese magazines through their local bookshops...

People often buy books through online bookshops such as amazon.co.jp, Rakuten, 7&Y, etc. and they are handling magazines as well. Do you mean these kind of services?

a list from googling and comment 2008/12/16 21:19
Subscription of magazines is called 定期購読 in Japanese,
so I googled it and found many online services. (all in Japanese)

However, as . says it is not popular to use such services 
for we can find local bookstores nearby,
and common magazines are also
sold at kiosk in the railway stations and convinience stores,
which are available almost everywhere in city area.

Try the Japan Centre in london (or go to their website). They can send you magazines monthly and they have a subscription service as well.
