Inari Press is back, in a brand-new format!
After a few months of silence we have evaluated our articles and the way we published them. Starting next week we will be putting articles online every week. These articles will cover different themes with a little something for every reader. Our new format is very simple and it gives us the opportunity to write better and about great variety of subjects.
First of all, we will publish “Weekly Japan”, a short summary of what happened in Japan that week. This will always be posted on a Friday and if something big happens, we will post an additional article with more information.
Secondly, we will write a monthly article about the holidays and festivals of that month. We will focus on the customs that go together with these festive days and how the Japanese people celebrate them.
Thirdly, there will also be one article every month about the different prefectures in Japan. Each region or prefecture has its own specialties, nature, customs and story. With these articles we want to show you all the things Japan has to offer. Who knows, perhaps you will find new places to travel to.
These three subjects will be recurring constantly, but we will also have a bigger theme every three months. With a total of six articles per theme, we will paint you a bigger picture that will be published every two weeks. The first of these bigger themes will be “6 unusual but fantastic places to visit in Japan” in which we will tell you more about the lesser known but not to be underestimated places, buildings or regions in Japan.
In between all these, we will also publish extra articles about modern culture, folklore and social phenomena in the Japanese society. You can expect things like anime reviews, recipes, Monster of the Month and articles about hikikomori for example.
That is about everything for our written Inari Press. But there is more! We are working on a Inari Press Youtube channel. In that way we can also visualise the things we write about. Inari has a lot of plans for this channel and will be working together with the Department of Japanology at the University of Ghent to provide you with interesting movies about Japan. We will taste weird Japanese candy, talk about recent events and cook for you. This channel will go online starting February.
We hope that we can entertain you with our new format and we are looking forward to start! Also visit our Facebookpage on this site for more information about our new activities.
