Tokyo is a very interesting city where modern and traditional culture mix together. There are many kinds of events held in Tokyo and I sometimes see tourists looking for exhibitions where they can learn more about the traditional culture of Japan. You might have seen「Mikoshi」, or Dashi in pictures or videos and many people haven’t been able to get a closer look at them.

Writer / Translator

I’m a freelance translator from Tokyo who likes to travel right in the middle of the unpredictables in life. Through the translation of articles I hope to create points of contact between Japan and the rest of the world. As a writer, I want to add information that isn’t in the guide book, from a “wasabi” perspective!
