Kyoto Journal, a non-profit quarterly established in 1987, reaches far beyond Japan's ancient capital to be your gateway to understanding and appreciating the lifestyles, cultures and societies of Asia.
Taiwan’s success story as a young democracy and economic power in spite of its tumultuous modern history; its cultural richness and extraordinary natural beauty, all go largely unnoticed in the Western world. This is Kyoto Journal’s case for Taiwan, The Beautiful Island—for its greater inclusion on the global stage as a place to follow, visit, invest in, and, perhaps above all, to be moved and inspired by. Put together by some 30 collaborators based in Taiwan and elsewhere, complete with stunning photography and illustration. Guest edited with an introduction by KJ’s director, Lucinda “Ping” Cowing.
Discover quality writing from Asia in our award-winning magazine. Stimulating interviews and profiles; excerpts of works translated from Asian languages; fiction, poetry and book reviews, as well as a fresh look at the city KJ calls home.
Our space for reporting on exhibitions and happenings in Kyoto and beyond hosted by KJ or KJ friends; notes on some our favorites among the bookstores and venues where KJ is on sale in Japan and overseas; compilations of KJ's top-read articles, and much more.
