Atsuhisa Emori - General Manager, Nippon Taberu Journal League

After the Great Hanshin Earthquake in 1995, Emori moved to Tokyo in 1996 and worked as an editor for different publishers: Recruit, ASCII, and Media Factory. He was also the editor-in-chief at Kadokawa, one of Japan’s leading publishing companies, and planned and edited more than 150 books on travel, food, photography and general topics. He saw the decline in regional areas and decided to leave the company in April 2015 to apply his skills as an editor to revitalize these areas. He joined Nippon Taberu Journal League and is in charge of expanding the domestic and international network of Taberu Journal, a subscription-based informational magazine that features local food. Along with the magazine, subscribers receive fresh local food featured in the magazine. Divisions between producers and consumers and urban and rural areas are common challenges in Asia. Emori is in the process of launching a platform to enable Taiwanese, Korean and Japanese members to come together to tackle the challenge. He also works on cultivating abandoned farm land, preserving agricultural and forest lands (satoyama), and is an active hunter and works to preserve hunting culture. He grows his own vegetables on a three-acre field. His mission is to spread the richness and joy of being involved with agriculture.
