Marcus - an introduction

So this is me, today, in Shakuji Park, Tokyo, in the cherry blossom season, enjoying that lovely warm spring sunshine! Life is great!

I'm originally from the UK but have lived abroad for well over twenty years. For the past seven years I've lived in Tokyo, and I love it here. There are just so many things to see and do. My greatest interest is in the temples and churches of Tokyo and I've even published some books on them! Now I'm a tour guide. It's pretty much what I most love doing in this world.

My other hobby, one I started just recently, is reading Japanese manga, but I'm still a beginner at that and have a lot to learn! In the meantime, I keep exploring! My passion for this city, and especially its sacred sights, is huge. It's a passion that has shaped my life in so many different and wonderful ways. And I'd love to share it with you, no matter what the season!
