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 magazine's goal is to provide ideas for alternative travels and 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.

The first issue of the magazine is dedicated to the Kyoto area. Here we get to know expert tattoo artists, Sachi Matusyama's wooden design objects, travel tips from maritime Kyoto, the typical Machiya houses, the fish culture of this city, and photographic tips for visiting it.
