When you get to the city, stop at a newstand and look through the magazines there. Find out which one matches your style. Then call them up and introduce yourself. If you're a foreigner, they'll able to usually meet the same day or the next day - they're always interested in visiting photographers. Japan may be a bit harder...at least the French and Germans speak English somewhat...
I managed to get a meeting with Vogue when I was in Paris just by saying "Hello my name is etc,etc and I'm a photographer from etc,etc visiting just for a few days, I like to come by and show you my book, etc, etc...."
I called around noon and got a meeting for 4 o'clock.....of course I got shot down in a nice way but well, if you're in Paris, why not call Vogue and meet their assistant editors ?
Good luck !
