Storied is an independent magazine dedicated to Japan's little-known people, traditions and places. It is a travel magazine written by Japanese with a very specific intent: to reverse and make the country's tourism more sustainable. Aware that in recent decades mass tourism has invaded and significantly influenced the way of interpreting a land once shrouded in charm and mystery, the aim of the magazine is to provide ideas for alternative travels able to introduce authentic gems of the country.
What the publishers are committed to do is go and find enchanting places and equally interesting people especially in the world of culture, art and design, and talk to them to make them ambassadors of their lands.
Inside there are also small travel tips and practical information for those who would like to visit these places from afar.
ISSUE 2 - THE ISLANDS ISSUE
Volume two of Storied is a true collection of unknown places and untold stories. It takes us on a journey across Japan far and wide, exploring the various islands of the country, investigating the emergence of distinct customs that are held together by a shared Japanese way of life. We venture on waves lifted by a brackish breeze and through dense forests of fresh foliage, across bridges built to bring communities together and over sleepy volcanoes topped with clouds of steam.
