Stories by Foreign Residents of Japan
This unique collection of short stories unites
the thoughts and experiences of six very different individuals sharing
a common bond: they all reside in Shizuoka, Japan. These stories contain
romance, tragedy, adventure, fiction, a few laughs, personal experiences,
and a little bit of everything under the rising sun.
This is the first issue and I sincerely hope something interesting
has stared and that we shall see more of them with other writers and stories!
Among the pages you will find:
-Rice balls, green tea and love hotels
-A fractured family sitting down to dinner.
-A chain-smoking neglectful babysitter.
Monkeys running amok.
-A glimpse into an apocalyptic future.
-An intoxicated women trying her luck at keno and life.
-Single women searching for Mr. Right and finding a whole lot of Mr.
And then some.......
