A Saga Worth Telling, and Visiting

We love locavore stories, but for our travel issue we go father afield—sometimes much farther.

She also spent a few days in Saga City, the capital of Saga prefecture, on Japan’s southernmost island of Kyushu, visiting people who make ingredients both traditional and innovative.
