21 year old blonde Kiwi seeks fame and fortune via pretentious and gimmicky travel blog that will inevitably discuss mundane observations of an exchange student’s everyday life in Osaka, Japan, with a special focus on Japanese toilets.
Student from the University of Otago, New Zealand in final year of Japanese degree, studying for one semester at Kansai University. Became interested in Japan at the age of six thanks to an obsession with Sailor Moon, and has never looked back since. Hopes to pursue journalism after finishing up the studies, but would rather fight evil by the moonlight.
“Welcome to Friends in Ramen, the mad ramblings and reviews of a ramen-obsessed New Yorker who has somehow found himself in Osaka. I’ve created this blog for foreigners in Osaka who want to eat good ramen, English speakers abroad who want to eat vicariously in the great east, or anyone else who wants to stop by.”
“My name is Benjamin Weber, and I’m a New Yorker who moved to Japan last year. When I lived in the US I had eaten some good ramen, but I never really had a grasp on the different styles. After I moved to Japan my eyes were opened to the myriad ramen blogs and publications, and I entered the true world of ramen.”
Nanban Look talks of the photographic records of a Portuguese in 21st century Japan, highlighting aspects of particular historical and cultural importance to a country which was first brought into contact with the Western eye in 1543 with the arrival of the first Portuguese (or nanbanjin).
“The author is a Portuguese researcher resident in Kyoto, currently undertaking his studies at Kyoto University. Whenever possible, he appreciates traveling both to the countryside and to major urban areas in order to get in touch with distinctive features of Japanese culture.”
A blog about life in the Kansai area, a relatively unknown but very chill part of Japan. Through informative and personal posts, I hope you’ll get a feel for life in the part of Japan and perhaps make a point to visit some time :)
“A graduate of the animation discipline, I followed a lone Japanese exchange student back to his home country and we decided to live together forever. Well, not exactly like that, but more or less~
I teach English at a chldren’s conversation school, but I still want to keep life exciting and lead the lifestyle I had back in school (minus the studying and projects, piercings, dying hair.. ahh…).
I am easy going and always open to questions or suggestions. :)”
This is a simple blog that aims for showing some images from Japan from the point of view of a Southern Europe Barbarian provided with a simple iPhone 4. Welcome! Bem-vindo! ようこそ！
Born in Lisbon, Portugal. I’m now Phd Student at Osaka University.
I started writing this blog to keep my family updated on my adventures in Japan and it grew from there. I love blogging now because I have a chance to reach people all over the world, to tell them about Japan, and about being a wife and new mum in a foreign culture.
Not an easy question to answer, but basically, I am a 30 year old kiwi girl living in Osaka, Japan. I am also a wife (since July 11th 2010, to Yoshi, a Japanese guy) and a new mum (since April 8th 2011, to Aiden), a daughter (to a mum living in NZ and a dad living in the UK), and an older sister (to Eve).
