Migration //移住・渡り

issue 6 of Kamihikouki Magazine | released: Mar 13, 2016


It has been almost exactly two years since Kamihikouki Magazine launched its first issue Last Train/First Train in Kobe, and now we’re honoured to bring you Issue 6, Migration. Kamihikouki Magazine has grown, changed, and migrated in many ways, but our intent has stayed the same: “to create a space for artistic minds in the greater Kansai area.”


Our community is one full of migration, seasonal and personal, and our lives are always changing. Yet despite the constant flux, we believe that without this community, none of this would be possible. Let’s work to make a place where we can create. We look forward to all that is to come!


Happy trails,

The Kami Team

Guardian: Oni

If you want to go beyond this gate

steady your rattled soul

wrap it up like a pearl in a shell

stop and listen to the voice inside yourself 

don't abandon it

for it will protect you one day


The sixth Kamihikouki Magazine release party, celebrating the MIGRATION issue, was held at Pine Brooklyn in Fukushima, Osaka on March 13, 2016. The event featured performances by Belgium Solanas and April Marti, The Pirates of the Dotonbori, Warakudow, Plastic Mantra, a poetry reading by Victoria Garafola, and VJ James WackaWacka and DJ Issei.  


We also premiered a new film: Hungry for Something, the Kamihikouki documentary. Three of our members - Jennifer and Duncan, the creators of the film, and Emma, one of the founders of the zine - are leaving Japan and we couldn't think of a better way to say goodbye. The film is dedicated to you, the Kamihikouki communtiy! Enjoy!
