Two Trips to Japan
One planned in early December; another hoped-for, this summer
I’m planning a second visit to Japan with my younger son, Simon, in early December. Another meet-up with ACX Tokyo is in the works, but I’m also available for additional events throughout the country. My tentative plan is to go north to Nikko, then hit Kyoto, Kobe, and Nara, then head far south to Nagasaki, Kumamoto, and Kagoshima. Any readers in any of those cities who want to organize an event? Please email me.
I’m also hoping to visit Japan again during the summer. For that to work, however, I’d like to find a position at a Japanese university, think tank, or other friendly institution. Three of my books have been translated into Japanese (though not the one that Japan arguable needs the most), so someone in the country must like my work!
I understand that foreigners have major issues earning money in Japan, but I assume that paying my family’s expenses would be allowed. A four-week appointment would be ideal, but I’m flexible. Ideas? Again, please email me.
