About me: Salaryman, formerly of the USA and Japan, now living in Hong Kong.

About the blog: My primary blog, The Tokyo Files, paints a portrait of Japan’s capital city through the lens of my obsessions, which include art & architecture, history & urban planning, and, most importantly, craft beer.

The Hong Kong Files is my early attempt to document what I learn, see, and do, about the fascinating city of Hong Kong.

My other blogs:

The Tokyo Files Archives was started in November 2014 to hold photos and other files that may or may not be the topic of full blog posts. More to come…



Funny Japanese Street Signs

My ever-growing collection of funny Japanese street sign photos.

Some Prefer Nettles

The blog’s name is inspired by the English title of Tanizaki’s book of the same name and is a project with the motto: provoking the unruly mind. Less polished than my other blogs, this gives me permission to be more prolific and take more chances.

I See American People

My “American” blog, this is the start of my lifetime attempt to make sense of the United States and beyond.
