Book a quick appointment with the Hair God! I saw this out in Sugamo, which is not too far from an actual shrine dedicated to hair, in all its many forms. Barbers, stylists, stage actors and celebs of all stripes come to Oji to pray for good hair days and get their wigs blessed.

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!
