Hi folks. I’m from the UK, been living in Japan (Nagoya) a while and will be writing about things that interest me from time to time. (food, beer, music, gardening, politics, computers, languages…) Somewhere between the world of geishas, samurai and ninjas, and the manga-tech bubble of Akihabara and Harajuku there’s the Japan where most of us live, Japanese and Gaijin too, and that’s the zone where this stuff comes from. I hope you might find some of it vaguely interesting.
Don’t expect too much incisive analysis or up-to-the-minute breaking news.
