About me

Location Near Tokyo, Japan
Introduction Despite being born in Japan -- and having spent 80% of my life living in the Kanto area -- everyday, I find something about Japan that baffles/irritates/delights me. This blog is a collection of such photographs, my mild social commentary. If I'm lucky enough to be able to go abroad, those photos will find their way onto the blog as well. Finally, the seemingly random posts on films are a nod to the initial reason I started this blog: I want to write about film. My daily life simply got in the way.
