I decided that the time is right to make a blog just about Japan. Searching for a name, this one wasn’t taken, so ‘Japanophilia‘ it is. In the past, I’ve resisted doing something like this, I suppose partly from not wanting to be pigeon-holed as ‘that guy living in Japan’, but you know, if the cap fits, wear it! I am living here and the visits of a couple of friends, both of whom were delighted to be here showed me that there is a rich, enjoyable culture here and I am being a bit selfish to the other ‘gaikokujin’ of the world by not doing more to share it. I personally am something of a Japanophile, though I might add that a lot of the things that I love about this country are either quite far from mainstream, or part of the heritage of begone eras.
Japanophilia is Online!
