Interested in Japan and things Japanese? Well, you may enjoy this site! It is dedicated to bringing you some fascinating and sometimes unique facets about Japanese life. I’ve also unashamedly plugged my novel, The Quest for the Shogun’s Gold that will be published late this year or in 2017. I’ve interspersed my posts with quotes from the book and they appear in red text. But enough about my book. Please check out my posts! It is springtime and one of the flowers so beloved by the Japanese is the fuji 藤, or wisteria. Thus, the photo.
