Travelling abroad to discover new places, getting to know different cultures and learning foreign languages has always been my passion. I was born and raised in Germany; however, for a few years now I've been very lucky to be able to spend my life abroad. I lived for some time in England and Italy before moving to Japan in October 2009.

It took me a while to adapt to this very different world; however, travelling up and down the country has helped me to not only adapt, but to actually fall in love with this country Japan. It has also reawakened my interest in photography, so whenever I get a chance I pack my camera and discover something new.

Japan is full of beautiful but less well-known places. To make these more discoverable for everybody, I'm very happy to be able to share my stories and photography on this site, and open a world of extraordinary experiences, which would be difficult to find in a guidebook.

For any queries regarding Tokyo as a travel destination or any of my published articles, please feel free to contact me.

This is so well written, and all so true. This is the magic of Shimokita. I have been there so often, and still get lost and never find the shops again I would love to visit a second time :-) But that's exactly what I love about it!

This is a great overview of the area. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and putting it all into perspective! I went to Furukawa in April this year and it was truly wonderful - a very nice surprise!

I didn't know that this is so much more expensive in the Kanto area. So you are right, one more reason to do that while in Kyoto! Please let me know your comments if you get a chance to go there.
