Our Osaka Blog

We are a Finnish-English family from Brighton, England. In March 2014 we moved to Osaka, Japan for three years without any real prior experience of the culture, people or places in Japan. This blog is about our experience of life and people in Japan, and what faux pas we make and what awkward situations we find ourselves in because we dont know the language or the Japanese way to behave.

Deep Kyoto

Deep Kyoto is a website for foreign residents and tourists, introducing those good places and people that make up the modern city. The primary focus of the blog is on cafes, bars and restaurants of character. However, any other information I consider beneficial for long and short-term visitors will also be included. All reviews are of places I personally have visited and taken a shine to, and include opening hours, plenty of photographs, and super clear directions so you don’t get lost.

Direction Japan

20 years work in japan Whether you are a seasoned executive moving to Japan for a short-term expat contract or a long-term resident in Japan changing to a management position this site is for you. I am a French citizen currently living in Japan and I will try to share with you my soon-to-be 20 years experience in Japan, mostly in foreign companies. But WHY? I saw in 20 years so many companies failing in Japan for obvious but simple reasons. I am currently the representative director for a small European company. I was headhunted when the company had only 4 employees but was losing more than 1 Mio EURO and was crippled by debt... it was few years ago. Today we will reach soon 20 employees, are debt free, profitable and even paying dividends to the headquarters. And the business is growing very well. So HOW? My intention is to address in each post a specific issue, sometimes illustrated by a real-life story or experience. At the end of each post I will give some down-to-earth Hints (not advices as I believe you will have to judge by yourself what to do in your own context). Feel free to contact me if you need more insight on a specific issue. So now enjoy the reading.
