I'm Richard. Thanks for dropping in.
I'm a husband to a wonderful woman, and father to two wonderful kids. I grew up in the UK and have called Japan home since 2000 (hence the name of the site).
I love being outdoors, especially running, cycling, and hiking.
I also like nice food, nice people, books, simple living, minimalism, and design.
I work in education (primary and tertiary), and also as a freelance writer and editor. When not doing those things for other people, I do them for myself. I used to be a designer, but I stopped that a while ago.
If you'd like to get in touch, please do!
