I am originally from the UK and have now been living in Tokyo, Japan for 12years ( and counting ).
I am a professional photographer and I write for this site. When I arrived here, I loved vending machines, I thought everything was cute and all people are so lovely. I quickly realized that Japan is a very odd country with very weird things. I am not saying Japanese people are odd. But there are a lot of odd things that I want to explain to you to make your visit here easier, more enjoyable with less stress. Using a train tickets machine or using the toilet doesn’t ’ sound stressful…? It can be believe me !

I am a Japanese girl living in Japan. I have only ever lived in Japan, so I don’t know different countries. 
I do love Japanese culture and beautiful Japanese place. My hobby is traveling and taking pictures. I want to explain how awesome Japan is ! Also I want to tell you real information about Japan. Sometimes Japan is odd and weird but it is a good point of Japan I can say. Japan is a very original country. I hope you will enjoy this site. Welcome to ODD JAPAN !


Welcome to We strive to bring you top tips and helpful information on this odd country. Having lived here for 12 years I have come to realize I will never truly understand this strange, beautiful country and it’s many odd things. But I do hope to benefit you from my experience. Every week I will write an article on different strange things about life in Japan as well as information on how to get to places easily. I don’t want to bore you with the usual type of tourist information available on the web. I want to give you real information. We would very much appreciate it if you shared this site.
