Greetings from Takako

My name is Takako.

I was born and grew up in Japan, in the foothills of Mt Fuji, and currently live in Sydney, Australia.

My husband and I operate a boutique travel service, both organising and leading small groups, and providing a self-guided tour service, to destinations around Australia, Japan and the world.

I have been interested in overseas travel since my early days, and having traveled widely around the world, I have developed a deeper interest in my own country Japan, especially Japanese crafts.

In this blog, I am going to write about Japan, Japanese craft and what I have seen and thought when travelling the world.

Between tours I organise Sashiko Classes, where you can experience the Japanese traditional stitching. I am pleased that my class can provide an opportunity to meet people and build friendships.

Please follow my Facebook / Instagram where I update new information.

I look forward to connecting with more people.
