A certified traveloholic, Lisa had traveled to or lived in a whole slew of countries before calling Japan home. She has an unquenchable thirst to learn about the world and is a stickler for facts and authenticity. As a result, her writing provides insights on topics ranging from the quirky and rare to easy-to-unpack explanations of Japan’s more complex customs and practices. She’s practically an encyclopedia. Her knowledge of Japan is only dwarfed by her love of Instagram Shiba inu videos and Japanese metalcore.
