Japan Travel Specialist
My first trip to Japan was in 1997 to study abroad. Living with a host family in Shizuoka completely changed my life. I’ve now spent most of my adult years living and working in Japan.
My goal is to help others see the real Japan like I have, and experience its culture beyond the typical tourist sites.
