As you might be able to tell I have let the maintenance of this site slide this year.  So much for my new year's resolution in January. Anyway.. the site is not completely dead. I have been through and deleted all the dead links and removed any blogs or sites not updated within the last year.

I have had very few requests from bloggers to be added to the site this year. Here are the ones that have been just added :

Family Time in Japan from Japanese full-time housewife, living with a husband and two sons in Tokyo. Bringing you items on news ,food, music, travel and lifestyle.

Kansai Odyssey from Lina and Shigeharu. Lina's hope is that "this blog can provide everyone with information that I certainly did not have my first time coming to Japan. I have always been passionate about Japanese culture and history and am excited to be able to share it. My husband and I take great care to make sure we give accurate and well researched information about all the great things you can find in Osaka and the Kansai region. I also hope that our articles will help you be able to write your own odyssey in Japan and invigorate you to explore this special country."

Japan Objects is an online magazine for culture lovers, presenting the most inspiring Japanese art & design and tailor-made travel guides, from two avid Japanophiles, living in Tokyo, who are enamored with the wealth of distinctive arts in this beautiful country.

Inside Sport Japan Bringing you the best of Japanese sport daily. Covering X-League, Sunwolves, BraveBlossoms, Soccer, Sumo and Basketball.

Take Me to Japan
Not really a blog: they "help introduce Japanese language courses in Japan, so people can find the right one that suits them" But there will be some tips on living in Japan coming up soon. There were a couple of other new blogs started but both seem to have already stopped posting after a few months. Should you wish to encourage these new bloggers head over to :Nihon Scope  and Watashiin Japan and give them some love.

I rely on people to submit entries for the list. so if you have a Japan related blog or site you wish to be included, please contact me.

Happy Holiday to everyone and all the best for 2018.
