Who am I and what I write for subscribers

I’ll approach this like workplace icebreakers.

Hi, I’m Leon and I’m an English speaker.

I split my time between a small Japanese city and a big Australian one.

I go between these places with my partner who has a Japanese family.

I’m sharing my thoughts on Japan and its unique culture and society from the viewpoint of a non-local.

I’ll share tips about travelling and living here for English speakers.

This Substack will detail my perspectives on unique aspects that I have found while living here and will have a new update weekly.
