About the author

John Rachel has a B. A. in Philosophy, has traveled extensively, is a songwriter and music producer, and an evolutionary humanist. He has spent his life trying to resolve the intrinsic clash between the metaphysical purity of Buddhism and the overwhelming appeal of narcissism.

He is author of nine novels, three non-fiction political books, and one creative non-fiction fantasy/travel/cookbook, as well as hundreds of articles, short stories, and poems. Currently in development is a new novel set in Africa, and an American satire on the self-help crazes of the 80s and 90s.

Author Rachel has explored or lived in thirty-four countries since leaving America August of 2006. He now lives in a quiet, traditional, rural Japanese community, where he finds infinite delight in the ringing of temple bells three times a day by monks at a local Shinto shrine. These days he is mostly immersed in good vibrations.

Update #4 - How do you imagine Japan? Sept. 4, 2020

Is this how you picture Japan?

I can totally relate. Because that's how I pictured this country before my first visit. Of course, Tokyo and other big cities like Osaka and Yokohama do indeed look like that.

But 70% of Japan is covered in forests. And much of the land is devoted to farming. And there are rivers and lakes and hills and mountains.

So here is a photo of my wife, Masumi, taken when we recently visited Hiruzen, a community near the Sea of Japan. Not exactly a concrete jungle, eh?

LIVE FROM JAPAN! with over 450 photographs and 62 anecdotes about my experiences here since I first arrived July 2007, will show you another side of this amazingly beautiful and charming nation. The people. The traditions. The food. The morals and the customs. 

ARRIVING IN NOVEMBER!
