Call them customs, second nature or ways to celebrate the passage of time: rituals are humanity's waypoints on our journey through life. From the quotidian Asian breakfast that's been elevated to an almost spiritual act, to one writer's annual bird-like migration to Antarctica, this issue honours the joy found in traditions old and new around the world. In this issue, find the surprisingly contemporary world of Romanian witches, the matriarchal traditions of Estonia's Kihnu island and the deep meaning of Fuji-ko, which sees some 400,000 pilgrims make the journey to Japan's most storied mountain each year.
