My name is Héctor García and I was born in Europe in 1981 and moved to Japan in 2004. I write books about Japan and I’m passionate in learning new things everyday, reading, writing and taking pictures. I love traveling, science, physics, astronomy, science fiction and Japanese culture. I enjoy more creating things than consuming them, I’m a dreamer.
I wrote a book about my observations while living here in Japan without many expectations, but after ten years since its release, A Geek in Japan is still a top seller on Amazon Japan ranking. It has been translated to eight languages and sold more than 100.000 copies.
I continued writing and published Ikigai – The Japanese secret to a long and happy life in 2016, as of today, it has sold more than one million copies all over the world.
I’m very grateful to all my readers, they are the main reason I keep writing. Thank you!
