We know the true beauty of Japan from inside.

I am living in Japan for more than 30 years and I am proud of my country. I have also lived in the United States for 5 years and realized how exotic the Japanese culture is from outside. If you are travelling in Japan or wish to come somewhere in the future, I recommend you hear an advice from a local. 

I’ll be your friend in Japan!
