Visit Tokyo, an ultra-modern wonder punctuated by tradition! Or wander the crooked streets, incense-filled temples at dawn, eating exquisite meals that taste as beautiful as they look in Kyoto. Satori Guides are a hand-collected set of accommodations, sites, and things that arose out of conversations with locals, years of travel professional expertise and a love of exploration. We curate these selections carefully to offer what fascinates and inspires us. Find out where to start your adventure by using the suggestions in this book as jumping off points.
In a country steeped in a thousand years of culture and tradition this book provides a starting point for the cities of Kyoto and Tokyo. These fascinating cities are worthy of years of exploring. In this book begin to know the culture and mysteries housed in high-reaching skyscrapers and the tiny businesses run of traditional houses next door to them.
Satori Guides are about the transformative potential of moments you have while exploring a new place. Our guides offer a curated glimpse into places and experiences that might change how your life is lived. Traveling is all about experiencing new places outside of yourself and the internal journeys they allow us to take. In this series each restaurant, shop, or hotel is hand-picked because of it’s potential to transport you out of your life for a few days and into a place that brings perspective.

Amanda Eicher’s projects investigate the roles artists play in development processes; the ways groups engage in creative thinking; and intersections between traditional community-based art practices and contemporary approaches to social engagement in art, relational aesthetics, and dialogic practices.Read More
One of the favorite parts of what I get to do is celebrate people who love their places. Gabriel Talavera is one of these people! It's contagious when people love the places they invest in. Gabriel knows his city and the stories it holds. With a history as an architect it is like being invited to time travel through the ages of this ancient capital as he describes the city. Check him out in the recent Satori Guide of Roma and Condesa!Read More
Excited to be sharing with you this project that has been in the works for quite a while now!

I love that the New York Botanical Garden created a show for this summer based on Frida’s garden. Recognizing the color, smell, and the visceral parts of her proccess engaging with the world. In Mexico City there are gardens everywhere and it feels teeming with life. Succulents and cactus alongside jacaranda trees, big brightly colored steps, terracotta pots.Read More

Recently back from Mexico City and full of big city tastes. I was, as I always am in Mexico City, bowled over by all the tastes from each region coming together in the cacophonic way that only a city of that size and force has. I ate delicate conchas with their magical scalloped pattern. Tacos that were bigger than any taco I have ever seen filled with perfectly spiced rib-eye steak. Sweet pink tamales and rich atole that cut through the cold of the high-altitude morning.Read More
A tired gate that swings open with a groaning squeak each time it’s used indicates the coming of morning here. Then the footsteps and loud voices of people finding their way to the parked cars in the parking lot next to my house. The parking lot that is like many lots in my neighborhood, part jungle and part functional.Read More
I am in Merida. La ciudad blanca. It is perfect weather and the trees are in bloom. It is the kind of weather that people here say would ruin the city by attracting all the tourists from everywhere. I love it.…Read More
A blanket of yellow has descended on Yucatan. The tajonal flowers are everywhere. They are as tall as me insistently pushing their way into the narrow country roads that I spend so much time on recently. These flowers make the air feel thick and full with pollen and change the sound of the low scrubby jungle to a muted buzz. This is the temporada of honey. It is the time when little fires burn on bumpy roads sedating the bees with thier sweet smoky haze. And the time when campesinos can be seen making their ways down these same roads carefully swathed in thick white netting atop their motorcycles.Read More
