Hello. I’m Billy. Let me take a moment to introduce myself.  I’m from the USA and my hometown is New York.   I’ve been interested in Asia and Asian culture for as long as I can remember.  But there was one country in Asia particular that I was especially interested in, that was Japan.  When I was in high school I made it my goal in life to one day visit or even move there.  Many people often ask me “Why were you so interested in Japan back then?”.   To this I would have to say, the culture, language and the people.  In addition, there was an air of mystery and exoticness whenever I heard the word “Japan”.

Fast forward five years.  I’m at SFO (San Francisco International Airport) about to board a Japan Airlines flight to Tokyo.  My dream has finally come true, I’m on my way to Japan.  Twelve hours later I arrived at Narita International Airport.  The start of my adventure into this mysterious and exotic country had begun.  This was twenty six years ago.  Looking back, I’ve experienced and learned so much since then.  In this blog I will share with you everything I know about this incredible place called Tokyo!
