Hitotoki: Quick travel snippets from around the globe

with one comment

Travel experiences translate well into words. But sometimes we don’t want to invest in a whole travel essay; we just want a snippet. This is where Hitotoki comes in. The online literary magazine is a collection of stories of singular experiences linked to cities worldwide.

Hitotoki, which means “little moments” in Japanese, pulls together short narratives which give us a quick glimpse into travel experiences — be they about love, confusion, absurdity, routine or sadness — had in Tokyo New York, London, and DC. A Parisian version is to be launched soon.

  1. Interesting site.

    They’ve got a dizzying setup, though, which probably emphasizes their philosophy, so I suppose it all makes sense.

    I’d like to point out a nice pun “Hitotoki” has goin’ on. “Hito” also means “person.” Doesn’t really go together when the two characters are next to each other in actual Japanese, but it’s rather amusing in romaji.
