About me

Koshie the Nakasendo Monster appears in unexpected places. Do not hesitate to talk to him if you see him. By the way, Nessie the Loch Ness Monster is my brother in law.

Koshie presently works for a tourism office on the Kiso road, Nagano prefecture, Japan. He used be a EtoJ translator specialized in technical documents, but writing in English is not something he is good at. So, as you follow his websites, you can see how he improves his writing in near future. Do you think the old man can do it?
