Mina-san konichiwa!! My name is Ilham from Indonesia. I'm growing up in a rural area of Jambi province Indonesia and now currently studying at Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University in the rural area of a small city called Beppu, that's how much I love living in the rural area. I'm a part time solo traveler and also the founder of Okonomikatsu blog, a Japanese culture blog based in Indonesia. I love writing about Japanese culture as much as i love my cats and....yakiniku! never forget about yakiniku 😀
