Best. Purchase. Ever. How many ways do I love Kappabashi, the street where Tokyo restaurants go to shop?
If you’d like to visit Kappabashi Street the next time you’re in Tokyo – where you can make your own plastic food, buy half-price dinosaur heads and nyan-tastic cat teapots – directions & maps are on my website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.
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!
