Gourmet food trucks: sooo last year! Bring on the cocktail truck! What could be more festive than a van dispensing libations to thirsty holiday shoppers on the streets of Shibuya? This rolling Smirnoff bar was serving up Mojitos, Cosmopolitans and the mysteriously named Caipiroska* when I last sauntered past the Parco store at the end of November.

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!
