I’m a 27 year old guy from southern Germany who has a special interest in Japanese culture and books. My love for this foreign land came through watching Japanese films when I was still a sweet teen. It had to be somewhere around 2004 when I discovered Miike, Teshigahara and Ozu for myself and haven’t stopped digging deeper into Japanese culture ever since. Maybe three years ago I finally took the big step and started to learn Japanese. No idea why I waited so long. I was probably too intimidated to start because everyone online was writing that it’s an insane project you shouldn’t start with in the first place.

After visiting Japan for the first time in early 2013 I started this Blog where I want to share my personal selection of Japanese things I enjoy.
