   WHO AM I   

I'm Alex! I started because of my passion for the region, especially cycling on the Shimanami Kaido and my favorite city of Onomichi in Hiroshima. 

I studied Economics with a minor in Japanese at the University of California, Davis. I am a recovering triathlete (1x Ironman Finisher), a race car driver, swimming coach, and a student of life. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, USA.


   About is an English Tourism/Travel Guide to the Seto Inland Sea (Setouchi) Region of Japan from a local's perspective.
