Jim Rion is an American in Japan. He’s lived in Yamaguchi prefecture since 2004, and now has a house a stone’s throw from the Seto Inland Sea.
A freelance translator, he spends his free time between family and the bottle (I kid, I kid). He’s also been known to take a banjo to hand, as well as play the odd hundred or so hours of video games a month.
