About Patricia
Patricia is a long-time Tokyoite, with research interests in Japanese sake (nihonshu), travel and exploration, and travel literature. Her Masters in Japanese literature from University of Colorado at Boulder provided a deeper context and appreciation for what she encounters. Favourite places include Tsukiji fish market, Asakusa, and Kamakura. She lives in Ryogoku, home of sumo and traditions. She recently completed a career teaching English (largely in academic reading and writing) at Meiji University, Meiji Gakuin University, and Tsuda University. In April 2023, she relaunches her English instructor work with Kaichi International University on Mondays. An Air Force "brat", she lived in Japan when very young, then throughout the USA, to London, and mid-country France. Japan felt like home, in the end. :-) Other interests include photography, the incredibly various Japanese cuisine, museums, body building and wandering around the streets of Tokyo poking into places. She enjoys sharing the surprises and making sense of the seeming chaos with visitors.
