I'm a Kiwi (New Zealander) living in Atami. Passionate about and travel, history, and nature. 22 years working as a tourism marketing professional in Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, Fiji, China, and Indonesia. Of course also love rugby, so very excited about Japan's inaugural participation in the Super Rugby Franchise in 2016, and hosting the Rugby World Cup in 2019.
