Which one of these traditional Japanese tenugui hand towels is not like the others? Hint: it’s the one with the poem that reads:
“One of these is small,

“Without question, the best book I have read all year.” —Susan Spann, author of the Hiro Hattori mysteries
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!
