Born in the UK and raised in the United States, I’ve made my home in Kyoto since 1992. Since moving here, I’ve spent over a decade studying the Japanese language and culture. In 1995 I started working as a Regional Correspondent for The Japan Times, a national English-language newspaper published in Tokyo. In 1996 I started writing for Lonely Planet Guidebooks and since then I have worked on 23 guidebooks to Kyoto, Japan, Tokyo, Malaysia, Southeast Asia, Borneo, and Victoria (Australia).
I offer you private walking tours of Kyoto, Tokyo, Nara, Hiroshima and Kanazawa.
