I started this blog when I moved to Tokyo in 2008 and my daily life was a sensual overload.  The name Wasabiwabi is a derivation of the Japanese word wabisabi which means the “worship of the imperfect”.  But that name was already taken – so now I have a truly imperfect name for my blog.  I now live in Rye, New York and strive for a life where my senses are overloaded…its a daily struggle.

    I just read and looked that the photos of your lates trip that you took with 6 other women.

    Your desciption of everything you saw and did matches perfectly to the fabulous photos you took. I love your blog. and you too!

  2. You’re in Tokyo, eh? But get down to Kyoto
    from time to time. Very good for you. Even though I’m in good ol’ Birmingham, I invite you to touch base next time you get down Kyoto way, as I can tell you and your friends about a couple of cool places that are very easy to get to, but are *not* “regular” destinations. Nothing weird, mind you, just some nice scenes and good food.

    All kind things —

  3. Dear Lisa,

    It’s been good to check out your work here and for Metropolis, I wonder if you wouldn’t mind dropping me an email so I can contact you about another writing opportunity.


  4. Hi Lisa-

    I came across one of your articles in Metropolis and was hoping I could convince you to share some of your expat insight with my site : Expat Arrivals.com (http://www.expatarrivals.com). Let me know if you’d be interested, I look forward to hearing from you.
