This is the most famous skatedog in Yoyogi Park. (Yeah, there’s more than one!) Most of them just sort of ride, with all four feet on the board, but this little guy actually pushes off and gets up to speed, then hops on! Love that he skates goofy and regular, all at the same time.
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!
