Restraint from particularising with definite particle seemed the minimalist thing to do. Dual meaning of Travels as noun vs. verb is a pun for Japan and its people who deserve low impact travel. But most of all, this journal is for likeminded folk whose hearts beat at understated artisanal excellence, joyed by a ray of light reflected on simple concrete surface and whose main decision in purchasing a shirt is on how the buttons are stitched.
The author Minimalist is an urbane seeker of understated perfection in architecture, design and culture. During 9-5, he is Asia Pacific leader of Design Hotels AG, hand-selected curation of 300+ privately owned and operated hotels globally.
