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 donít get lost.

Loco in Yokohama

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.

Wandering in Miyazaki

I'm a 22 year old black girl from NY living in Southern Japan through the JET Program, and my blog is just about my experiences that I'm having as they occur. I find myself constantly surprised about the the things that I see here, whether pleasantly or unpleasantly. My experiences in Japan might or might not apply to other girls if they live here, but I am just documenting ones that I have.
