About Michaël, the author of this blog
I am Michaël, a French who moved to Tokyo in 2016. I work in digital marketing for Japanese and foreign companies. Before that, I already visited Japan several times as a tourist.
Like many people of my generation, my childhood was influenced by Japanese video games and anime. Even if I do not claim to be an “Otaku”, it is certainly this early exposure to the Japanese pop culture that explains my long-standing interest for this country.
In this blog I share as much information as possible about the Japanese archipelago and its culture. My goal is to help you prepare for your stay in the Land of the Rising Sun, whether it’s a short trip or an expatriation. I sincerely hope that my blog posts and those written by my friends will help you make your project in Japan happen.
