For Fukui’s Sake: Two years in rural Japan

by Sam Baldwin

Far from the high-tech, high-rise of the super-cities, there lies another Japan.

A Japan where snakes slither down school corridors, where bears prowl dark forests and where Westerners are still regarded as curious creatures. Welcome to the world of the inaka – the Japanese countryside.

Unhappily employed in the UK, Sam Baldwin decides to make a big change. Saying sayonara to laboratory life, he takes a job as an English teacher in a small, rural Japanese town that no one – the Japanese included – has ever heard of.

Arriving in Fukui, where there’s รข??little reason to linger’ according to the guidebook, at first he wonders why he left England. But as he slowly settles in to his unfamiliar new home, Sam befriends a colourful cast of locals and begins to discover the secrets of this little known region.

Helped by headmasters, housewives and Himalayan mountain climbers, he immerses himself in a Japan still clutching its pastoral past and uncovers a landscape of lonely lakes, rice fields and lush mountain forests. Joining a master drummer’s taiko class, skiing over paddies and learning how to sharpen samurai swords, along the way Sam encounters farmers, fishermen and foreigners behaving badly.

Exploring Japan’s culture and cuisine, as well as its wild places and wildlife, For Fukui’s Sake is an adventurous, humorous and sometimes poignant insight into the frustrations and fascinations that face an outsider living in small town, backcountry Japan.

Paris of the Orient: A City Guide for Families in Hanoi, Vietnam

by Jenna Mulligan

What will I find in this City Guide?
1 – A brief history of Hanoi, the surrounding Red River Delta, and the northern Vietnamese culture.
2 – Vietnamese traditional food & drink, specifically specialties of Hanoi, along with our restaurant and coffee shop recommendations.
3 – City sights that you cannot miss, and the activities and entertainment that you won’t want to miss.
4 – A breakdown of the various districts of Hanoi, and our recommendations of how to find lodging.
On top of all that, we will fill you in on the destinations around Hanoi that can be reached within a day. Are you considering moving to the city, rather than just visiting? This book will answer your questions on how to become an expat in this inexpensive capital, and will describe why so many young professionals are choosing to do the same.

Why do I need a guide?
Because the tourism industry of Vietnam is still on the rise, information on the web is limited and often contradictory. Many of the tips and tricks of Hanoi are passed around by word of mouth, which is difficult for a tourist to access. This guide is like the outstretched hand of a current expat, offering to show you around and give you the answers you’ve been looking for. Welcome to Hanoi!
