Why else keep a log if not to put it to use on future voyages back to the places already visited? If so much trouble is taken to write down everything considered necessary, is this not in order to sign the way for others or ourselves when by chance we are again confronted with the same regions and season?

Aaron “tokyoaaron” Paulson here, here being a suburb on the western edge of Tokyo, roughly halfway between the mountains of Okutama and the neon canyonlands of Shinujuku and downtown Tokyo.
Welcome to my newest blog! Big Sushi, Little Fishes continues the on-again, off-again story of my adventures as a long-term expat in Japan – a narrative first started over thirteen years ago with Postcards from Hokkaido and maintained sporadically through other efforts such as Tokyo Kills Me.
Inevitably, these blog posts will reveal more about me. For now, let me just say that I teach at an international school here in Tokyo, and write and take photos in my spare time. You can see the results of some of my efforts over the years at my new web site at www.aaronpaulson.com.
Dozo yorushiku onegaishimasu, as we say here in Japan. Please be kind to me.
