About

This site is a collection of cool sights, experiences and observations from the my personal perspective (an American living in Tokyo). Of course, I welcome other views from worldwide friends so please don't hesistate to comment with additional insights.

Although there are many sites and blogs on the 'net documenting foreigners' lives in Japan, none really focus specifically on how the cultural differences affect everything from behavior to fashion, food, technology and beyond. It's a fascinating subject. I've been living in Japan since June 2005, but still, new things catch my eye almost on a daily basis. This site is my way of sharing my observations with others. I hope you'll find it as intriguing as I do.
