Tired of running back and forth to the nearest alcohol vending machine when it’s time for another round? If you live near this model in Ningyōchō, you’re in luck! It barely gives a nod to those pesky single-serving sizes, opting instead for tall beers, double-shot mixed drinks, and whole bottles of wine, saké and shō-chū.
Read a novel set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
