About Me

Hello, and welcome to A Day of Zen!

This is a website I created to share my knowledge, passion, and love for Japan.

In 2015 I took my first trip to the land of the rising sun, and it quite honestly changed my life. I was able to stay with my partner and her family who live out here which made my experience far my authentic than any standard holiday.

From that moment, I decided to dedicate a huge chunk of my time to creating an informative and valuable source of information about all things Japan. In 2022 I made the decision to move here permanently which means better content for you, and way more for me to write about!

This includes cultural questions, entertainment, travel guides, Japan-themed products, and the best way to learn beginner Japanese.

Fast forward to today, and I’ve been published in a variety of magazines including Tokyo Weekender, Metropolis Japan, and I’ve got a regular column over at Ski Asia where I get to combine my love of skiing and Japan together.

I hope you enjoy your time on the site, and let me know if you have any questions by emailing me at adayofzen@gmail.com

またね! ^_^

Yup, a slightly cringey photo of me in Japan!
