    1. I would be delighted to write something for the Azalean Journal! As you may have noticed by how many azalea-centric blog posts I’ve made, I’m a huge fan, and it would be such a pleasure to connect with other azalea lovers.

      What would your readers be most interested in seeing/reading about? I have visited and taken photos at peak season at all the best gardens and shrines within two hours of Tokyo. Would they be interested in a piece about where to find them? Or perhaps they’d just like to marvel along with me at the insane levels of cultivation that result in such spectacular all-over displays (although I can’t pretend I know how they do it!)

      Here are a few pieces I’ve written on azaleas in Japan:

      Thanks for reaching out—I love to discover that other people love the same things I love!
