Fare Magazine – Issue 10: Kyoto€17.00
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.
