Recently there’s been a craze for hot donuts here in Tokyo, but people can only cram so many into their pieholes while sitting in the store. What about the dozen they’re taking home to fatten up their friends and family? Enter the dedicated donut zapping case! In the land where perfection is prized, Krispy Kreme is not alone in turning out donuts that are so perfectly alike that no matter where or when you buy one, it’ll fit snugly in the case, ready to be tossed in the denshi renji for the recommended 5 seconds.
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!
