What’s in the blog?
JapanCanMix is a lifestyle blog with a cultural base, focusing mainly on Japan and Canada. You’ll see a variety of posts from food to photos and travel tips to intercultural stories.
- Japan-related posts from sweating to bad fortunes
- Photos from Japan and other neat spots along with stories
- Japanese podcasts – hubby’s work interprets Canada in Japanese; we’ve also done a couple of English podcasts together
Are you also a hopefully eventually confident parent? Join us in our parenting adventures and commiserate. The last one was all about flying to Japan with baby-chan.
Did you know a helicopter is one of the ways to get from Narita to Tokyo? Taking the bus in Tokyo can give you a different perspective! Are you interested in staying at a capsule hotel or manga café? How about summer running tips?
If you have experiences that differ or not, I’d love to hear about it!
Is there something you’re curious about or want me to write a post on?
Leave a comment or contact me and we’ll go from there.
The blog’s name
The name combines my home country and my husband’s land, both of which are part of us now.
Our backgrounds usually swirl together, but occasionally not, and we are now raising our child in an environment that straddles two cultures.
Finally, Japan and unique are often in the same sentence. The blog name is a playful reference to the notion that something that is special can dance with a partner outside its margins.
