日本心: True Feelings on True Japan

日本心 (nihonshin), coming from the Japanese words 日本 (nihon) meaning "Japan" and 本心 (honshin) meaning "true feelings", is about honest opinions about life in Japan from my American perspective. It goes beyond the arrogance and delusions of many foreigners in Japan with ideas of "conquering Japan" or "becoming truly Japanese". Also meant as a positive space for those interested in coming to Japan to study or work.

Tokyo Podcast

One of the most exciting cities in Asia, Tokyo is a pulsating, neon-lit, adrenaline rush! From its hyper modern culture to its cutting edge technology this is a city that is rushing full speed ahead into the future, and yet there is a quiet calm among the 13 million people who call Tokyo home. Historic parks and temples stand beside modern skyscrapers and internet cafes, fashion conscious Tokyoites shop alongside women wearing traditional kimonos, and at the heart of the city the stately Imperial Palace retains a tangible link to the past.

Big Sushi, Little Fishes

Why else keep a log if not to put it to use on future voyages back to the places already visited? If so much trouble is taken to write down everything considered necessary, is this not in order to sign the way for others or ourselves when by chance we are again confronted with the same regions and season? - LIngenieur Duplessis (in Writing Away, Lavinia Spalding) Aaron tokyoaaron Paulson here, here being a suburb on the western edge of Tokyo, roughly halfway between the mountains of Okutama and the neon canyonlands of Shinujuku and downtown Tokyo. Welcome to my newest blog! Big Sushi, Little Fishes continues the on again, off again narrative of my Japan adventures first started some thirteen years ago with Postcards from Hokkaido and maintained sporadically through other efforts such as Tokyo Kills Me. Im certain Ill reveal more about myself through these blog posts. For now, let me just say that I teach at an international school here in Tokyo, and write and take photos in my spare time. Dozo Yorushiku Onegaishimasu, as we say here in Japan. Please be kind to me.
