When Zenbu Tours founder and host Jane Lawson isn’t on tour in Japan or travel for story research she’s in Australia presenting or writing about Japan – her travels, the culture, the food and people.
Where? In her books, on the radio, in the Sunday paper, Japanese festivals and events = and across several online platforms including this one….
Jane has authored several Japanese titles and several more on other cuisines/cultures – you can find some of them HERE.
Tim Webster speaks to Jane Lawson author of Tokyo Style Guide which offers style-savvy travellers a unique insight into Tokyo’s culture and aesthetic, and suggests places to eat, sleep and shop.
Jane has a personal page on Facebook – an ‘Author’ page, a page for Zenbu Tours, a page for Zenbu Home and if you are interested in Japanese Food and travel generally – why not follow her Japan Food Culture and Travel Page on Facebook – you can add relevant information too – share your Japan travel stories, related businesses etc.
EATSPEAK is Jane’s original blog which she dips in and out of – it has a bunch of less recent Japanese material and some rather unpolished writing, non Japanese food/travel tidbits, some of her recipes, her occasional cooking classes or Book Publishing in a Nutshell workshops etc.
Yep, she obviously has too much time on her hands – check out all the glorious Japanese-ness of her Pinterest page if you are a pinner too!
Like everyone else she’s been coerced to throw herself at the mercy of the Linked-in Gods too! She’s here…
Did you know Jane and her husband Gerard also run ZENBU HOME – an online store where you can find beautiful Japanese items for self or home – mainly vintage (think handmade silk Kimono) , some new (artisan ceramics, incense, greeting cards, stationery), a few antique items (obi sashes, little dishes, sake cups etc) and some simply pre-loved but in great condition schtuff (could be anything really…).
