Help us fund our print issues

Kyoto Journal is recognized worldwide for its superb print quality, embodying an essential Kyoto tradition of fine design. Since 2017 our independent, all-volunteer team has created nine beautiful print issues consecutively funded by subscriptions, book and back issue sales. Unfortunately, the impact of the pandemic forced us to publish two recent issues (KJ 98 & 99) digitally. Thanks to your kind donations we were able to print our 100th issue, “100 views of Kyoto.”

That issue sold out quickly. Its publication would not have been possible without the generous contributions of our donors, especially the Friends of Kyoto Journal, each of whom gave $100 or more:
