EDITORS NOTE .
This project came quite literally with no time at all to piece it alltogether. There was much deliberation about creating this print media form and how we were going to be honest about giving foreign and local travelers information that was relevant and frankly was going to increase their happiness and give them experiences that should remember. The thing is that we sort of felt that its like you arrive somewhere and do it, and then you get the “Okay, so now what?” moment. And it’s easy to just say I will go back to the city, its close to my hotel etc…You take the easy route and then quite possibly miss an experience that could have been something memorable. Hatsukaichi is not so easy say or remember and we know..Which is why we called it HERE(Hatsukaichi Eat Relax Experience) so you can do something local and feel like you went out of your comfort zone even, and did something or ate something you will remember and bring with you after you leave. There really is something in this print for everyone. Whether its eating good food, or finding cool craft, or taking care of yourself from all the things that life throws at you, we believe there really is something in this that you should experience. It would be a waste not to after you have come such a long way. So we hope you enjoy our first issue and please share, post, whatever! Just get out there and feel this community. It’s worth your time, the people here are really kind. Also a very very BIG SPECIAL THANKS to Yasuba-San for making the world better through this outlet.
