Ash Watson has a degree in Animal Biology and a working history in Veterinary Care, but his world turned upside down when he picked up Japanese classes again.
Ash’s connections with Japan began in 2005 when he started to travel frequently to Tokyo. He lived and worked as a teacher in a reputable private high school in Northern Tokyo from 2016-2018.
Ash kept a 'Journal of Firsts', documenting his weird and wonderful experiences around Tokyo and the rest of Japan, which became the basis for his debut book 'Because Japan'. The book is a collection of behind-the-scenes anecdotes told from the perspective of an expat residing in Tokyo. A mini train-based series of hilarious encounters can also be found distributed throughout the book.
