Not An Expert On Chicken Anatomy, But…

MosChicken…where exactly did Mos Burger find a chicken part that looks like THIS?

If you can’t be eating weird Japanese chicken nuggets, you can always read a novel set in Tokyo

“A genuinely gripping crime thriller which wrong-foots and perplexes the reader throughout, drawing us in emotionally . . . Highly recommended.” Raven Crime Reads

For nine years, Tokyo Detective Kenji Nakamura thought his mother’s death was an accident. Then he gets a call, and his life begins to unravel. Because if it wasn’t an accident…what was it? Read more

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!

  1. Slightly unrelated, but have you been to the McDonalds in Shibuya lately? The one “inside” the BicCamera? On the wall near the entrance they have one of the actual “molds” used to make the chicken McNuggets from the Pink Ooze, with all the official shapes marked out. I prefer Japanese cuisine myself but it is always interesting to see these “how we make them” sort of thruthisms.

    • Arg, I keep trying to get to this one so I can check out the molds and report back, but somehow my end of Tokyo errands keep taking me further afield. Perhaps it’s for the best, as I will certainly regret every chicken nugget I ever ate (yes, I admit the errors of my youth!)
