Romancing Japan - James & Akari profile

James and Akari


Hi everyone! I'm James and this is my amazing wife, Akari. We live in Kyoto, Japan, where we raise two beautiful children. Akari is a native to Kyoto and has lived here her whole life. I, on the other hand, am from Melbourne, Australia. I started coming to Japan as a teenager and have over 30 years of experience with Japanese culture. We've made Kyoto our home and together we've built the Romancing Japan site so we can share our passion for Japanese culture, lifestyle, and travel.
