【MATCHA Monthly Feature】Amazing Destinations

The editorial team at MATCHA lives and breathes for travel. On top of this, we have a flexible workcation system that allows us to see more of Japan. With so much travel experience, it’s challenging to narrow down our favorite spots. Still, we tried our best: the editors introduce their most memory-filled, unforgettable destinations in Japan, from the life-changing pilgrimage route of Kumano Kodo, to the charming fishing community of Ine in Kyoto.

  • Ine, Kyoto: Beautiful Daily Life In A Scenic Seaside Town

    Kyoto

    Kyoto's northern coast is famous for the seaside town of Ine and its unique funaya boathouses. This article, however, focuses on the everyday lives of locals, which gives unparalleled beauty to this town. Head to Ine if you're looking for a relaxing break from the city.

  • Kumano Kodo: A Life-Changing Trail Through Japan's Beauty

    Wakayama

    I was once barely interested in travel but my visit to Kumano Kodo—an ancient pilgrimage trail— in May 2010 completely changed my mind. My desire to work in a travel-related profession can be traced back to that unforgettable trail from Kumano Hongu Taisha in Wakayama.
