Learn traditional building methods in the Keihoku mountains, Kyoto
Based in the bucolic, mountainous Keihoku area in north-west Kyoto, the Roots sustainability programme offers multi-day educational tours to groups, with an emphasis on connecting to nature, sustainability, and immersion in local culture.

Each bespoke tour is structured around a central project and interspersed with other (optional) experiences such as hiking, rice planting and craft workshop visits. You might, for instance, learn the art of kayabuki (thatching with pampas grass) from an expert, process typhoon-damaged timber in a cedar forest, and then build a treehouse under the guidance of a local lumberjack, carpenter and treehouse “master”. These crafts have been given a boost by the fact that traditional Japanese kominka architecture belatedly gained Unesco Intangible Cultural Heritage status in December 2020.

Los Chinos Opening at Brickell City Centre

On the dining and entertainment front, two local heavyweights are set to collaborate for the first time.

Los Chinos, a Latin-Chinese dining and entertainment concept, has announced that it will open at Brickell City Centre in late 2020.

The spot marks the first collaboration between Breakwater Hospitality Group — which operates the Wharf Miami, the Wharf Fort Lauderdale, and Rivertail — and Grove Bay Hospitality Group, the name behind restaurants like Stubborn Seed and Red Rooster.

“Francesco Balli, Ignacio Garcia-Menocalco, Alex Mantecon, and I have been friends for years, and we have always been extremely supportive of each other’s businesses,” says Breakwater cofounder Emi Guerra. “While we both work in hospitality, our brands differ, and Los Chinos is the perfect combination of both.”

Restaurants and the hospitality industry have been hit hard by lockdown measures, and many have introduced delivery services to help them survive.

Let’s face it, we’re all getting tired of our own cooking after countless weeks into being stuck at home, and a takeaway satisfies our cravings for flavoursome food from our favourite eateries.

Some, such a Patty & Bun and Pizza Pilgrims, have created DIY kits to allow you to recreate dishes in your kitchen.

However, if you’re feeling lazy or simply looking for a fine dining experience from a more upmarket restaurant, many have now started doing food delivery or collection. You may have even planned to visit before lockdown scuppered your plans, so now is your chance to enjoy it from home.

It’s perfect
