Neko in Nippon 116
 
Hikone-shi, Japan
Hi! I'm Emily-san and I run Neko in Nippon (dot com). I'm a self proclaimed writer, photographer, foodie, expat & lover of all things cute & fuzzy! I have a severe case of wanderlust & I hate routine. Timing & luck finally met up to shine its light on me & my small family, taking us from Michigan in the USA all the way to Shiga, Japan. Follow me as I discover Japan.
