BIO: Life in Japan is what you make of it, and, whether representing his prefecture in the grueling 10 day Kyushu Isshu Ekiden road relay or touring the country with an avant guard musical ensemble, Paul has always thrown himself into the thick of it. Japan has given him so much and he’s now on a mission to share all it has to offer far and wide. As well as a full-time faculty member of Hiroshima University of Economics, he’s a co-founder of GetHiroshima.com and editor in chief of the GetHiroshima Magazine. He loves exploring the Japanese countryside, all the better if he can do it on foot or by bicycle. Even after more than two decades, he feels like he’s barely scratched the surface.
