About Koshie


Koshie the Nakasendo Monster will pop up everywhere in Kiso area. If you happen to see him, do not hesitate to talk to him.

Koshie presently works for a tourism office on the Kiso road, Nagano prefecture, Japan. Even though he used to be a EtoJ translator specialized in technical documents, writing in English is not something he is good at, but don’t worry. As you follow this blog, you will see how he improves in writing articles.
