My Japan Trips

I’m lucky enough to have traveled to Japan five times now visiting Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Arashiyama, Hiroshima, Nagoya, Mt Fuji, Hakone and more. I’ve been sharing memories and tips on my blog since 2008 and this page collects all the main links together plus other useful blogs, guides and trip reports, resources, maps and more. I hope you find it useful in planning your own trip!

My Japan Zines

japan zines and books

I have self-published lots of Japan-themed zines and guides inspired by my own trips and research. Print editions are available at Asking For Trouble and digital PDFs at Etsy & Payhip. My guides are no longer updated – you can still get them as free/pay-what-you-can downloads at my Ko-Fi Shop. I also wrote The Super Cute Book of Kawaii for Pop Press/Penguin.
