About "All About Japan"

This site is about connections. Every week, we try to draw a line through a Japan-related subject and illustrate how it connects to you, something you're interested in, or at least something you've heard about. The subject may be uniquely Japanese or it could be the Japanese version of a broader trend. Maybe you didn't even know this thing came from Japan, or that a cool thing from your home country could be found here, too.

about us

We work with a network of bloggers, partners and our own content developers to bring you everything we can think of that might get you interested in something related to Japan. Already interested? Great! We'll take you deeper. We believe connections lead to discovery.

So, are we really *all* about Japan? Maybe not yet. But we're getting there, one micro-subject at a time.


About All About Japan

We love Japan. There are people out there who love Japan. There are people out there who love stuff that happens to be from Japan. And there are people out there who—let's be honest—have no interest in Japan.

Our goal? Turn that third group into the second, the second into the first, and get the first to get off their butts and come pay us a visit! If demonstrating how many cool things and ideas can be found in Japan pushes people along the way, we'll gladly keep doing it week after week!

So, what if you already live here? Then we've got lots to show you! Or maybe you've got something you'd like to show everyone else? Then see the contact section about getting in touch—we'd love to help you share it!
