In 2015-2016 I cycled from Tokyo to London (the city of my birth). Upon my return to Japan I moved to a remote village in the mountains of Yamanashi. I live alone in a kominka that I am slowly fixing up. I grow vegetables, brew cider and beer, study the koto and make silver gelatin prints in the darkroom. I have recently taken up windsurfing on Lake Motosu. The little money I make comes from translation and editorial work.
