Addicted to writing travel and culture stories, bathing in hot springs, and snowshoeing, I have been exploring Japan as an ex-pat for over two decades. I have soaked in more than 500 traditional and modern Japanese baths. In addition to writing articles and bathing, I also teach about tourism and global issues at a college in Niigata, Japan. If you would like me to send you queries about travel in Japan, or if you have any requests, please contact me. I am looking forward to meeting you.
