Fare Magazine – Issue 10: Kyoto

Sold Out
Select Title

Fare connects armchair travelers with immersive and nuanced stories from cities around the world, and also serves as a kind of roadmap for those who are ready to make the actual trip to see things for themselves.

Kyoto is Japan’s ancient capital and one of its spiritual centres: a city where food and faith intertwine with nature, and locals find their voices amplified by millennia of tradition.

In Fare: Kyoto:

  • Dive into the history of kaiseki cuisine in a centuries-old, three Michelin star tea house

  • Visit the workshop of a fourth-generation lacquer maker and activist who applies ancient techniques to wooden skateboards and bikes

  • Taste handcrafted jōgashi sweets inspired by changing seasons and the city's imperial past

  • Meet Yoshihiro Imai, whose wood-fired kitchen centres around the Japanese concept of shime and comfort eating

  • Take a look inside daily life at the student-run Yoshida ryo, the oldest wooden dormitory in Japan
