A Year in Japan - Kate T. Williamson

Hello lovelies, welcome to the new week! Did you have a nice weekend? I mentioned in the previous post that I was going to take part in a half marathon. I did it! Other than the fact that my legs nearly died, I'm glad I did it.


Did I tell you that I bought quite a few books online lately? I can’t help it! It’s so convenient! With a few clicks of the mouse, I’m done and just have to look forward to the day the postman knocks. One book which I’m really enjoying is A Year in Japan by Kate T. Williamson. It reads like a journal with text and illustrations of her time in Japan. I love that it’s intimate and it’s filled with observations of everyday Japanese life that outsiders often fail to notice. But it's exactly these subtle nuances that I take delight in finding out about.







I know I’ll be re-reading this book again and again, and drawing inspirations each time I revisit.
