Learn more about See Japan

Welcome to See Japan, a window into the captivating world of Japan, brought to you by Mitchell and Ahleen, two enthusiasts who have transitioned from living the dream in the Land of the Rising Sun to sharing our passion and insights from the outside looking in.

Our Journey

Living in Japan for 5 years, we experienced firsthand the harmonious blend of the old and the new, from participating in age-old festivals to navigating the futuristic streets of Tokyo. We've climbed the majestic Mt. Fuji, wandered through the tranquil Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, and lost ourselves in the neon-lit alleys of Shinjuku.

But our journey didn't stop at being mere residents. We dug in deep to the heart of Japanese culture, learning the language, forming lasting friendships, and understanding the nuances of Japanese etiquette and lifestyle. Our experiences have been as diverse as the country itself, from teaching English in the rural towns of Shikoku to working in the corporate jungles of its cities.

Our Mission

Now, as we find ourselves back in the UK, our mission is to bridge the gap between Japan and the English-speaking world. Through See Japan, we aim to share our love and knowledge of Japan, offering insights, tips, and stories that go beyond the surface. Whether you're planning your first trip to Japan, considering moving there, or simply fascinated by its culture, we're here to guide you.

Let's go on a journey together, discovering the beauty, complexity, and enduring allure of Japan.
