My two passions (travel and photography) united in a job that I love. After living several years in Kenya and Morocco. The love of Japanese culture and a husband trapped me in Japan. Discover parts of the authentic Tokyo, outside the typical sight guided by someone who has lived in the country for many years and understands its customs.
