My name is Jay Dee, and I’m a Canadian living in Japan. I’ve been here since April 2005, and don’t see myself leaving anytime soon. I’m married and we’re expecting our first child in early 2012.
This blog is here for anyone inside and outside of Japan to find out what it’s like to live in Japan, as well as to see many photos and information of interesting places in Japan. I have three projects going on this blog. First, I have Exploring Japan, which shows photos from all the places I’ve visited since June 2009. Second, there’s Flashback, which shows photos from before June 2009. And finally, my most ambitious project, Japan by Train. I visit different train stations and take a photo tour of the neighbourhood, including any temples, shrines, major shopping areas, and tourist sites I can find.
I have several hobbies that show up on this blog, including hiking and photography. I also enjoy hockey, reading, history, movies and nature.
