Interested in film and literature, art and music. In particular: Suzuki and Abe, Yanobe and Yazawa. Have lived in Tokyo and Sapporo. Would like to learn more about Korea. Soft spot in the heart for France, particularly Marseilles, and Italy, particularly Milan, although I have never been to either country. Also interested in Scandinavia. Prefer rice of any variety to any other food. I like to travel on foot if possible. Generally quiet. Speak English fluently and Japanese passably.
