The Japan Blog List was an idea hatched by a fan of all things Japan! Gary started the blog list in 2007 and built up a fine list of blogs. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. However due to other commitments he no longer has time to keep the list up to date.

So my name is Jon and I have taken over the task of maintaining the list in Aug 2010. I have a blog about Japan and I noticed that I got some referrals from but when I visited the site it was clear that it was not being kept up to date. I emailed the site owner and was surprised and delighted to find out that it was Gary. I met Gary while we were both living in Korea in 2006, and we both maintained blogs about our experiences.
