Kyoto Journal is an award-winning, volunteer-driven quarterly magazine presenting thought-provoking cultural and historical insights from Kyoto, Japan and all of Asia.
Founded in 1987, it is now the longest-established independent English publication in Japan and is acclaimed for its interdisciplinary approach, high standards of journalism and elegant design. The magazine's Founding Editor, John Einarsen, also received the Japanese government's Cultural Affairs Agency Award for KJ’s long-term efforts to introduce Kyoto and Japanese culture to the English-speaking world.
The journal looks for intelligent work that 'comes also from the heart' and is curious about society, beliefs, traditions and new developments — how people live, and live well — through the lens of Asian experience.
Not all issues are released as print versions so, if you see gaps in issue numbers, don't panic because these may have been digital issues. All the same, it's not easy to get copies in the UK – you seen them, grab them.
