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? - LíIngenieur Duplessis (in Writing Away, Lavinia Spalding) Aaron ďtokyoaaronĒ 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!

I enjoy exploring the 99% of Japan that most guidebooks and websites don't talk about. Why don't they? Maybe because they are too mysterious, too scary or simply too remote. The truth is that those places are so enchanting that it is difficult to come back. I am sharing those special places with you.
I started this blog to rant and rave about my life in Japan but it has unexpectedly turned into something else. Itís become an opportunity to explore my thoughts and feelings about life as an ex-pat in in the land of all that is cute and small. Iím a native New Yorker (Brooklynite) and a writer. I have been living here for nearly 5 years and finally I feel like talking about it. And I have a lot to say, so some of the posts may be a little lengthy. I know weíre all supposed to have short-attention spans these days but I donít and I donít do brevity well. However, I do my very best to keep my posts concise and thorough, real and interesting. Which is more important than brief, donít you think? This is not your typical journal about the foreignerís experience here. Iíve read most of them and theyíre mostly pretty happy-go-lucky written by people who are having the most wonderful experiences of their lives. I am not one of them. Maybe if I came from the countryside or something, but Iím a New Yorker. I guess growing up in NY has spoiled me. Got some of that snobbery of being a product of the Ďgreatest city on Earth,í and what-not. But, God help me, I do love Japan.
