Fare magazine is a biannual print publication exploring city culture through the intersections of food, history, and community. Each issue is guided by local writers, photographers, and illustrators, who give a taste of their home city.


This issue explores Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital and one of its spiritual centres.


In this issue:


  • The history of kaiseki cuisine in a centuries-old, three Michelin star tea house
  • The workshop of a fourth-generation lacquer maker and activist who applies ancient techniques to wooden skateboards and bikes
  • Handcrafted jōgashi sweets inspired by changing seasons and the city’s imperial past
  • A look inside daily life at the student-run Yoshida ryo, the oldest wooden dormitory in Japan


Issue nine and Issue five of Fare are also available in the Stack shop.
