I've been fascinated by Japanese culture since I was 14. I remember borrowing a book and a tape (yes, it was a while ago...) from the library and attempting to learn the language. I'm not usually one to give up on things, but Japanese isn't the easiest language to learn. I thought I'd be better off concentrating on my German and French at school. Then when I was at university I was really pleased to be able to study a unit called the 'Japanese Business Environment'. It was so interesting to see how Japan's history and culture influence today's business world.
Anyway, I'm really happy to now combine my love of Japanese culture, books and photography into notebooks like these:
