Support our unique, award-winning, independent magazine.

Each issue of Kyoto Journal is crammed with diverse, thought-provoking articles: essays, interviews, translations, poetry, fiction reviews, art and photography, covering aspects of Japanese and Asian culture that don’t show up in mainstream media.


Here is what some of our readers have to say about us:

“I have saved every issue since I found you in a bookstore in Kyoto 16 years ago. You have enhanced my life and kept me in touch with a city I loved as well as teaching me about so much else.”

“My first hard copy of KYOTO JOURNAL arrived! Thank you so much… is a gloriously beautiful publication and I look forward to many times reading and looking from cover to cover and back again. I anticipate being a subscriber for a long time!”

“Delivery issues aside, I have just begun leafing through the Journal and it’s a spectacular effort! Even before reading, the topics, graphics and even printing exceed any of my expectations. I am glad I discovered the publication on Instagram”

“Just received it. Its by very far the best magazine I have seen. Worth every penny.”

“I am really amazed about the quality of the writing and the pictures (whole layout) for a non-profit magazine.
I would like to thank for the great work and hopefully many more issues to come”
