Japan is a pretty amazing place that has been attracting the curious for years. The purpose of this website is to share my experience of and knowledge about this country with you.

I've lived in this amazing country for several years and have learned tons in my time here, both from books and from people.

  • History - famous figures, events, and time periods
  • Traditional Arts - Tea Ceremony, Flower Arranging, and more
  • Superstition and Mythology - Gods, demons, ghost stories, and others
