Originally from England, I first visited Japan in 1997. My first stint as a resident was in Kyoto between 2003 and 2007 and now permanently since 2012. I have a keen interest in Japanese history and my house in Kyoto looks out over one of the thirty seven ancient Fujiwara graves (Uji Ryo).


I have written about Japan in a number of publications covering everything from the live music scene in Kansai to  gruesome assassination sites in Kyoto. I look forward to sharing some of my Japan experiences and hope that others can enjoy them first-hand too.
