Hi! I'm Mai and I live in Kyoto - the traditional heart of Japan. Having grown up across the globe, there is something special about Japan that always draws me back here, the way one’s home does. Each season here has a freshness, an appreciation through its festivities and color - surprising you with each turn as you see the cherry blossom petals wind through the air in the spring, the fireworks brightening the summer night sky. The magic never ends, and I carry my notebook to write about all the secrets and surprises I find about Japan to share with you.
