Writer: Ubba


Originally from the English Midlands, Ubba has lived, loved and worked in Japan for over 25 years. As with Ubba’s native Great Britain, Japan is an island nation and its people share many of the traits and aspirations of island peoples everywhere; perhaps this is one reason why Ubba has so easily adopted it as a home-from-home, and been adopted in turn! These days, Ubba writes extensively on Japan’s natural beauty, its people and its vibrant culture in the hope that others will want to experience something of the magic and spectacle of this amazing country for themselves.
