Due to the Fukushima nuclear disaster and its high uncertainties, I reached a fantastic decision to move from Tokyo to Bali with my wife and two little sons, in Dec.2011. Back in Japan as a no-nonsense Tokyo salary-man, I never dreamed to be a villa owner in Ubud, the MOST BEAUTIFUL VILLAGE in the world, but now I am!
I was born in Yokohama in 1972, studied commerce at Yokohama City University. I also studied at James Madison University in Virginia for one year, and graduate study in Stuttgart Germany. I can tell you that Bali and Germany are two extremes in many cultural aspects..... It's nice to know both.
Every Sunday I play baseball in Jimbaran with the other baseball freaks on this island. No baseball no life. I am a dog lover and brought a 2 year-old female toy poodle from Japan. Local people in Ubud ask me if it's a cat or dog. It's definitely a dog, amigo. No dog no life.
We lived in Ubud for 1.5 years, but recently moved to Sanur, South Bali on the beach side, due to our kids' schooling. Yes, it's nice to live near the beach, but for me Ubud remains as the best place on this island. Ubud is second to none!
