Interested in Japan and things Japanese? Perhaps you will find my site interesting. It is dedicated to bringing you some fascinating and sometimes unique facets of Japanese life. I’ve also unashamedly plugged my novel, The Shogun’s Gold-Solving a Historical Mystery . It will be published late this year or early 2022. 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! One of the flowers so beloved by the Japanese is the fuji 藤, or wisteria. Thus, the photo.
