I became interested in all things marine after learning to snorkel off the Japan Sea coast near my mother's hometown while living in Japan as a child. 4 years ago I became a certified diver and have been exploring Japan's waters ever since. Based in Tokyo, I write aquaculture and diving-related articles for magazines and websites in Japan and abroad while maintaining my blog Rising Bubbles, a comprehensive guide to Japan's diving scene.
