Just a few items before I get to the main point of the post today. I’m moving to a more central location in town this week and with better access to public transportation, I’m looking forward to broadening this website’s scope and discovering new good places and people all over this wonderful city. Certainly Deep Kyoto should lose a certain bias it has had up till now towards the north-east part of town…
Unfortunately, it seems my new apartment won’t be connected up to the internet for about a month. I won’t let this stop me from posting fresh articles during the interim, but I won’t be able to deal with the inordinate amount of spam I get every day, so I’m turning off the comments for the time being. If you want to contact me please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deep Kyoto’s facebook group is steadily growing (73 members at last count). If you haven’t joined yet, please do and feel free to use it as a chance to make your own recommendations or plug your own events.
Now to today’s main point. I am happy to welcome a new guest contributor to Deep Kyoto: Mr. Ted Taylor. Born in New York and raised in New Mexico, Ted has lived in Japan for 15 years. After more than a decade in remote Yonago, Tottori, he moved to Kyoto to further his martial arts studies. He teaches yoga, plays music, and writes random things as they occur to him, some of which find themselves in print. He lives at the eastern edge of town, a great springboard for hikes and walks.
Ted is the author of the wonderful blog Notes from the ‘Nog, which I urge you all to read and enjoy. He will be posting irregularly on up-and-coming musical and yoga events and anything else that takes his fancy. I am very excited that he has accepted my invitation to contribute his own unique voice to this blog.
