Seeking Instagram recommendations for life in rural Korea or Japan
April 28, 2021 10:21 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for Instagram* accounts that feature glimpses of life in either rural South Korea or Japan. Relevant hashtags would be helpful as well. *Instagram is preferred but Twitter would be ok as well, but really looking for visuals.

Kevin Kelly has posted many or all of the beautiful, interesting photos from Asia Grace. His next book is Vanishing Asia.

Best answer: Kei Maeda posts landscape photography, mostly, and mostly of Hokkaido. Not really rural life, but countryside.

This is a bit outside of your parameters, but you may enjoy the reality show Hyori's Homestay (Hyori's Bed and Breakfast on Netflix). It's a very loose reality show about a couple of musicians hosting people in their rural(ish) vacation home/ a tourist brochure for Jeju Island. Lots of sitting around and drinking tea on the porch and walking on the beach. It's a really relaxing watch but it's not the traditional 'rural' content you may be looking for.
