This road trip had been three years in the making. The first time I lived in Japan, I visited a few iconic places like Daikoku & Tatsumi, of course in a rental car. Fast forward a few years to a time when I’m again living in Japan, but this time, with my car! This 3… Read More The Ultimate Roadtrip in Japan! Part 1/3

Shaken consists of 2 kanji (Chinese) characters, the kanji for car 車 (sha) and the kanji for examination… Read More Shaken for Project Kouki! WHAT?!
I’ve actually been to the Wekfest show in Nagoya ever year I’ve been in Japan now. That’s not as amazing as it sounds though, as I’ve only been in Japan for two years. But, do you know what is amazing? Wekfest is. That’s what’s amazing. This show is one of my favourite show and shine… Read More Wekfest Japan 2018
