With almost 15 years of experience in journalism, Liam Carrigan loves nothing better that to write a good story about his adventures.
Liam first came to Japan in 2005 for a two week Kendo training camp. It was at that time that he first fell in love with the wonderful people and beautiful culture of Japan. Now, almost ten years later, Liam is proud to call Japan his home.
Originally from Glasgow, Scotland, Liam first moved to Japan in the fall of 2006. He worked in Tokyo and later Okayama as an English teacher. From 2010 to 2012, Liam spent some time in Hong Kong, where he worked as a writer and editor for an education and publishing company. His love of Japan remained strong in his heart, and in early 2013 Liam returned to his adopted homeland.
Now settled in Osaka, Liam divides his time between writing, teaching and learning Japanese. His hobbies include martial arts, movies and travel.
