Storied Magazine Volume 1 (Kyoto) is available on loremnotipsum.com. The Kyoto Issue takes readers on a journey across unknown Kyoto. A setting of significance as the cultural heart of Japan and the place that we at Storied Magazine call home.

We eschew the temples in favour of a photographic essay into daily life in the city, celebrating the beauty in the otherwise mundane through friend and photographer, Joe Keating’s, emotive images. Issue 1 traverses the forests and coasts of rural Kyoto. And we talk tea with the women in Wazuka that are pushing boundaries within the centuries old industry.

The Kyoto Issue also visits the world of traditional tattooing, an art form overtly discouraged in Japan yet one steeped in spiritual history. We are discussing what it means to perform the technique in present-day Kyoto, a city known for its strict adherence to cultural rules.

And this is just the beginning. The Kyoto Issue is full of emotive experiences, inspirational stories, and stunning design.

Storied Magazine is inspired by the people, places, crafts, and traditions of Japan – made for people seeking a connection to unknown characters and hideaways that are longing to be visited. As an independent magazine- come-journal and online platform, Storied Magazine celebrates the notion of slow and sustainable journalism, touching personal narratives, and considered recommendations for the conscientious explorer. It’s no secret that Japan has been high on the destination hit-list of many travellers and travel magazines for a number of years. Japan’s leaders have over the past five years, set targets for substantial growth with little regulation, subsequently causing more problems than benefits in certain areas.

The focus is on creating sustainable change – actively combatting the country’s over- tourism by illuminating unique and boutique options along the well-trodden tourist trail, whilst also educating our readers on lesser-known areas of Japan. We think that this not only offers truly exciting recommendations for travel, but also helps to foster a circular economy within local communities that want and need it. So, whether your interest is travel, design or cultural heritage, let the pages of Storied Magazine take you on a journey into the true heart of Japan.
