Kyoto Journal


Insights from Asia

I am honored and thrilled to be able to offer this publication. Kyoto Journal is celebrating 30 years of publication, but after some years as digital-only, it has recently come back as a print publication. And I have to say, this must be experienced in print! Kyoto is at the center of a story that illuminates the ancient culture of Japan and its region, which includes Korea and China. Whether it is on traditional craftsmen maintaining a centuries old tradition, a travel diary from the Meiji era, or an essay on a particular aspect of life in modern Kyoto, each piece is elegant, timeless and meticulously crafted, each issue a complete package. This is something to keep and treasure, something you will go back to time and again. Rare in the US, so don’t miss it! Quarterly, Japan, in English, $16.50
