Small Buildings of Kyoto

 About a year ago Kyoto Journal founder, John Einarsen, began sharing photos of Kyoto’s small buildings on our Instagram page. These buildings are so quirky, humble and endearing, and reveal another side of this amazing city.

We asked you what you thought of the idea of compiling these images into a little book. The response was a resounding “yes.” With your help, we raised over $10,000 in 6 days on Indiegogo!

This small tribute, published this spring, is now available for purchase. It features 100 images of the quaint homes, businesses, workshops, as well as the occasional neighbourhood shrine and teahouse, that make up the fabric of Japan’s ancient capital.
