Japan: Drifting Islands’, featuring Cover artist Mari Katayama with an exclusive interview with the artist post Covid -19, Travel essay from the acclaimed travel writer Pico Iyer to the celebration of the growth of Haiku across Africa and much more. In this special issue we revisit our view and understanding towards this island nation. At a time of changes and crisis with a sense of urgency, how can we possibly see and write about Japan? How do we reach beyond ‘Sushi’, ‘Manga’ or ‘Geisha’? Which direction are the islands drifting to? We invited contributors from across the globe, professions and cultures, with one aim to collectively imagine and draw an alternative map of the Drifting Islands in our diverse contemporary culture.
