My love for most things Japanese stretches back to my childhood when I first encountered Japanese ceramics at the Japan Trade Centre newly established in Sydney in the 1960s. Since then I have been forever called by this love. The culmination was finally visiting Japan in March 2020 and being virtually the only tourist there. To be able to wander virtually solo around places normally packed with visitors only reinforced my love of Japan which I fuel every night by watching NHK World television. On this part of the website is a collection of all things from Japan or that touch on or nod to Japan.
