Coffee bar

This Blog is running on coffee. 😊 Many cups keep fueling the hours of creative work that create the content you enjoy. I’m glad when people are taking something away from it, be it advice on travel in Japan, a book referral, or you enjoyed one of the stories in the blog. I’m always happy about your recommendation to people you believe would benefit likewise. 😍

You would like to return the favor? Your feedback is appreciated. Please drop me a line if you have suggestions about content, referrals of books, locations, vanlife in general you believe might be helpful, not necessarily limited to Japan:

I’m passionate about giving back. For me it’s important to return the favor to Japan, the country that gives me so much. I’m forwarding 20% of your donation towards this website to the ASHINAGA NGO. For nearly half a century, the Ashinaga Movement has striven to support orphaned students through education and engender yasashisa (ε„ͺしさ), or compassion, across Japan. With the generous support of people here, Ashinaga has been able to help almost 100,000 orphaned students continue their education.
