English Tips & Advice
A while ago, I started making short videos for my students to help them with specific English points they tend to have trouble with. It eventually became a YouTube channel, as I assume that if the videos are helpful to my students, they can be helpful to anyone learning English.
The videos are available directly on YouTube, as well as on the blog here. Sometimes blog posts have a few more details.

Seto Inland Sea of Japan & Setouchi Triennale
Setouchi Explorer is a site and blog content that I’ve been maintaining and writing since 2010. It will guide you through the Seto Inland Sea of Japan, particularly its eastern part and the Prefecture of Kagawa on the island of Shikoku.

Metastructure is a writing experiment that was started more than 15 years ago by a friend and me.
It only recently found its way to the web, and it will be an ongoing project for many more years hopefully.
Trying to describe it would spoil the fun.
The posting rhythm is very slow – the writing process pretty much has become one of a novel, even though I don’t see MetaStructure as a novel – as it’s a bit tricky to post paragraphs that may be completely changed at a later date. However, if you’re intrigued and want to read a preview of stories before they’re completed, click on the links below:
