Storied Magazine Volume 2

CHF 24.00 (incl. VAT)

Storied Magazine Volume 2 (The Islands Issue) is available on loremnotipsum.com. Volume Two takes us on a journey across the length and breadth of Japan, exploring the varied islands of the country, investigating the rise in distinct customs that are held together by a shared Japanese way of life. We venture over waves whipped up by a salty breeze and through forests thick with fresh foliage, across bridges built to bring communities together and above sleeping volcanoes topped with clouds of steam, to ensure that Volume Two, The Islands Issue, is a true collection of places unknown and tales untold.

Storied Magazine Volume 2 (The Islands Issue) is available on loremnotipsum.com. Volume Two takes us on a journey across the length and breadth of Japan, exploring the varied islands of the country, investigating the rise in distinct customs that are held together by a shared Japanese way of life. We venture over waves whipped up by a salty breeze and through forests thick with fresh foliage, across bridges built to bring communities together and above sleeping volcanoes topped with clouds of steam, to ensure that Volume Two, The Islands Issue, is a true collection of places unknown and tales untold.

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.

Content

  • We visit Amami Oshima and meet artisans working with local resources – from a workshop using iron rich mud to dye fabrics in rich earthy tones, to a woodworker using off-cuts from the forestry industry to craft sumptuous vases – we share the deep appreciation the island has for working with what the earth provides.
  • Heading north, we visit Sado, a land of agriculture, and tradition with a deep connection to Noh.
  • Moving down to the Seto Inland Sea, we visit sun-filled shores that are home to unique art and architecture projects intended to lure in prospective residents and travellers, actively combatting the steady decline in population numbers to which the islands have fallen fate.
