The current flapjack craze in Japan isn’t limited to restaurants serving extreme pancakes, now it’s hitting the grocery shelves as well! In a combo that could only have been dreamed up by a desperate product development team throwing darts at a wall of flavors, behold the maple-syrup-and-pancake-flavored chocolate chip cookie!
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!
