The purpose of this site is to give travelers the opportunity to experience Japanese philosophy, society and culture, meet people from all walks of life, in hundreds of locations all over raveled extensively, lived and worked in Japan for many years. First starting out on a working holiday visa, doing various jobs in the red light district of Shinsaibashi, Osaka. Then teaching English in kindergartens throughout the suburbs of Osaka, and teaching business men English in the cities of Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto and Nara. I have gained lots of insight and inside knowledge of the frugal lifestyle in Japan.
