Héctor García

 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. I love reading and photography. I enjoy more creating things than consuming them and I’m a dreamer. Start reading my blog or learn what I’m doing now 🙂 

The book
A Geek in Japan

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 300.000 copies. Thank you everyone!

I always say that I’m NOT and expert in Japan. I like to keep a beginner’s mind and be surprised everyday by what I see and feel around me here in Tokyo. Let’s keep learning about Japan together everyday!
