I originally made this only for myself. I wanted more than just a typical photo album, something that spoke to my personal experience. It's basically a curated version of my blogs from the time, excited re-edited, re-written and more photos added. This is the first time I have ever made anything for print, and honestly it shows here and there, but I put a lot of time and effort into making it something that I be happy with a decade from now. I am pretty happy with the results, which is why I have decided to make it available to buy and download, even though it has been well over a year since I left Japan.
I am not making money off of this. The price of the print edition covers printing and nothing else, I will see no profits whatsoever. Which is why the digital version is free, but that said, this was designed solely with a physical medium in mind, so the .pdf file may look a bit off.
And with that, I've started work on the next one.
