Welcome Message 

Welcome to my blog. I’m a Real Estate Agent who helps foreigners and native Japanese find comfortable places to live in Kansai Region and all over Japan. When I speak to my clients and ask them what do they like to do on their time off from work they always tell me they like to get outside, travel around, and enjoy Japan. This blog will also be about one of my passions and the passions of many expats in Japan, sightseeing and traveling. If you’re a long term resident or have a family like me I am also going to post articles on how to, Lifestyle, and culture in the Kansai and Hokuriku regions of Japan.
