Zen and the Art of Blogging.

A new blog has just been formed in Kyoto by friends of this blog, including frequent commenter yama-arishi. It is called chinpunbeifun. Don’t ask me what that means and don’t ask me to translate the few words in kanji that appear on their front page (although not to me with my present browser unable to accept Japanese characters). Still, illiterate that I am, I will be checking in with them often because I have always been fascinated by Japanese life and culture and even more because they will be signing up with Pajamas Media as Kyoto corresondents.
