Discover KJ: Join us for a Talk and Q&A May 24!

<Japanese below>

What’s the story behind Kyoto Journal? What topics does it cover? And how is it possible for a magazine to be run entirely by volunteers?


We’re excited to hold an event that will speak to all of these questions and more about the longest-running independent English-language publication in Japan! Join us on Friday, May 24th at HOSTEL NINIROOM for an engaging discussion with our founder and some of the members of our team. Our speakers will provide a history of the Journal and its evolution over the past 32 years, with a Q&A to follow. RSVP through our Google Form.

This is a great opportunity to learn about the Journal in a casual and intimate setting, so if you are already a KJ reader please share this event with anyone you think may be interested!
