Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival takes place January 25 - 31 in the Tokyo Dome. I have no interest in quilting, but always enjoy the exhibition as many of the quilts are impressive works of art. @excursions_japan#tokyo#japan#quilt#art
After several months of secret trips and meetings and negotiations and dreaming and planning, I am thrilled to share my big news with you… I am working on my next book all about life lessons inspired by ancient Japanese philosophy and culture, which will be out later this year.
Exciting things like the title and cover will be unveiled in good time.... ✨
For those of you who don’t know, over the years I have spent many years living and working in Japan, and have two degrees in the language. Even so, I am always discovering new things, and this book is a wonderful opportunity to dive deeper than ever into the magic and mystery. ✨
I know many of you share my deep love of Japan and all things Japanese, so I can’t wait to reveal more over the coming months as this exciting project unfolds (starting with another long trip to Japan next month – hurrah!) In the meantime I’d love to hear more about YOUR experiences of all things Japanese – please do share.
For those of you who haven’t really come into contact with that part of the world, stay tuned - you’re in for a treat!
I couldn’t be more grateful to be working on a book that brings together my three passions of Japanese language and culture, beauty and design, and personal development, but I must admit I am slightly terrified of my very tight manuscript deadline (April!) I have cleared the decks, booked time in and will be nose to the grindstone for the next three months!
Stay tuned... #japan#travel#asia#crossculture#adventure#igjapan#japanfocus#visitjapan@visitjapanjp#lovekyoto#japanlife#japanlove#pics_jp#japan_vacations#explorejapan#lovers_nippon#igersjp#ilovejapan#instagramjapan#japanawaits#thisisjapan#creativity#innovation#flow#ideas#ideation#creation#creativespirit#dwyl#dowhatyoulove#writersofinstagram
Let it snow, let is snow ❄️ It snowed in Tokyo and when we woke up this morning it was all white covered of snow ✨ I posted a lot of videos and pics on my stories. It’s pretty unusual for Tokyo, the last time it snowed like this was 4 years ago.

Il a neigé à Tokyo, en se réveillant ce matin la ville était recouverte d’un manteau blanc ❄️ J’ai posté plein de vidéos et photos dans mes stories. C’est rare qu’il neige à ce point à Tokyo, la dernière fois remonte à 4 ans. #snow
