-A Practical and Aesthetic Guide to Experiencing Japan's Ancient Capital-
Every month, 15,000 copies are distributed
Print copies of KVG are available free-of-charge at key locations throughout the Kyoto city.
Kyoto receives over 500,000 foreign tourists every year. However, many overseas tourists have a difficult time, mainly because of language problems, getting around the city, finding places listed in their guidebooks, and getting detailed Kyoto event information. That's what KVG is for. It has everything you need!
Published since 1987, KVG is a highly useful, 28 page English guide. Every month, 15,000 copies are distributed all over Kyoto, throughout Japan, and to countless locations world wide.
KVG contains detailed color maps, and excellent information on Kyoto accommodation (hotels, ryokans and hostels), shopping (handicrafts, etc.), and dining (everything from the finest restaurants to the best bars). We also have a complete monthly listing of what is on at Kyoto's temples, shrines, museums, theaters and other important cultural institutions.
Additional information listed in the magazine every month includes essential Japanese, airline and consulate contact numbers, telephone information, email services and postal info, tourist information, guide services, medical assistance, and information on how to get to and from the airport.
Print copies of KVG are available free-of-charge at Kyoto's main hotels, ryokans and hostels, Kyoto City Tourist Information Office (near Kyoto Station), and many other key locations throughout the city.
Get the most out of your stay in Kyoto. Get a copy of KVG! Ask for it. If your hotel or inn is out, then ask the front desk if they have an on-file copy, which you can read at your leisure in the lobby or coffee shop.
Thank you for visiting Kyoto! Please let us know how we can make your next stay in the Old Capital even better.
Articles and Photographs Wanted !!
We are a small magazine and so is our budget. However we are always looking for short, interesting pieces about Kyoto: traditional, art, culture, new trends, restaurants, bars, etc. We are also always looking for photographs to use. Though we can not pay, we will give you credit for your work and an excellent byline (with an email contact and/or phone number, which can be an excellent addition to your resume or portfolio). Send your articles or photos to the editorial section either by mail or email, then we will correspond to your soon.
