I have lived in Japan (Mie Prefecture) now for a number of years, have been afforded numerous travel opportunities, and have thus learned a great deal about optimal ways to experience Japan - not just the major destinations but also cities and nature spots on the road less-traveled. I will attempt to share these insights and expand the pages of places I know a good deal about.
Photos from my various journeys can be seen on my Flickr page
I am a native English speaker from the US and can understand written and spoken Japanese very well.

These are articles to which I've dedicated a decent amount of time.
