After wandering around Seisen-ryo and enjoying the idyllic rural scenery I found myself in need of sustenance, and after a short search I found just what I wanted - a charming bakery with a French name and very tasty looking bread.I selected olive focaccia and a flat chewy bread full of sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and enjoyed them on the wooden deck outside the door.

I came to Japan in 2003 to teach English. I lived in Shiga prefecture for one year, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Kyoto for nine years, then moved to Machida, Tokyo in 2014 after meeting my Japanese partner. I love to take photos, and my Japan in Pictures Facebook page has some 40,000 followers. I have been the Regional Partner for Yamanashi Prefecture since 2014. I am enjoying exploring the prefectures around Tokyo (I like to get off the beaten track), and I hope the photos and stories I share will encourage more people to discover this wonderful country.
