An attempt to document my experience of Japan and South Korea without judging, colonizing or rationalizing their cultures. My time living in Kyoto is now archived, but not comprehended. All of these materials were manufactured to be distributed. All of these materials were either free, freely purchased by or freely given to me. They are now in a plastic bag in my drawer, and on this webpage!!!!
