This is a personal website mostly about adventuring into the mountainous regions of central Honshu and occasionally Hokkaido, Japan. In normal times I also visit Australia and the U.K.
Originally from the U.K. I moved to Japan in 2001 after completing a BA Honours in Japanese, living for one year on the island of Shikoku before cycling to Kasugai, just outside Nagoya, in the summer of 2002 during a typhoon. I’ve been here ever since.
Over the last couple of years I’ve switched from mostly cycling and bike packing to hiking and walking and am currently exploring the Japanese Minami Alps and the Nakasendō. That change is reflected in this blog.
Some of my more popular post include:
I have a monthly newsletter, Restless.
