I am Ralf, a German Expat living in the beautiful city of Kyoto. I love traveling, meeting new, interesting people and consider myself crazy about Aikido.
After an almost 3-years trip, which led me through New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Burma, Laos, China and Russia, I came to Kyoto, Japan in 2012.
This trip could have gone anywhere really, but as fortunate as I was, I met my wife, a Japanese woman, so fate took its course.
Japan is a fascinating country, multifaceted and beautiful, but also challenging. On this blog I would like to share my thoughts and experiences with you, mainly about travel and society in Japan.
I wish you lots of fun!
