Welcome to the English section of this blog, dedicated to my life in Japan.
Far from guidebooks and cliches, I wish to show the twenty-first century Japan where the genius borders madness, the beautiful the ugly, revealing contradictions and contrats between urban modernity – the most advanced technology – and urban tradition, popping up at a corner.
Japan is a fascinating country with a rich history of 2000 years … Recovering from the traumas of History, Japanese have made their country a leader in the world today and tomorrow, constantly pushing toward new challenges in order to progress.
Far from unicorns and glitters, Japan is a land where strong issues deserves as much attention as its formidable culture.
Because the hidden face of Japan fascinates me, and it seems to me that revealing a country can only be accomplished once the wonder is past, by educated observation.
I am neither a sociologist nor a specialist in Japanese history. I do not pretend to assert absolute truth but I want to show Japan differently.
Because I love Japan, good sides and bad sides altogether, I want to share it with my readers.
