Story

Step into the unknown. Virge is a travel guide that goes beyond the classic landmarks and most popular restaurants. Each volume highlights a different area of Japan; this inaugural edition focuses on the rarely-visited Kanagawa Prefecture, just south of Tokyo. Editor Hiroshi Kamada interviewed locals to identify the region’s best hidden gems — the people, places, and things that have, by and large, remained undiscovered by the rest of the world. Each feature is accompanied by a brief biography of the person who proposed it, providing a glimpse into their unique philosophies, backstories, and lifestyles. This guide is not designed for the efficient, find-and-go traveler — instead, it’s for anyone looking to enrich their experience to the point where even the act of deciding where to go is a delightful part of the journey. Small, tasteful design details bring the pages of Virge to life, underscoring the notion that here, somebody else’s ordinary can become truly extraordinary.
