About Bishop & JinK.


“An American who has lived in Japan for 5 years. A language enthusiast who has mastered English, Japanese including a local dialect, Izumo-ben, and Chinese.” by JinK



“Left Japan, the country he called home for over 40 years, to come to the US in 2013. A change designer and transformation agent.” by Bishop


This blog is about every day cultural experiences as experienced by Bishop and JinK.
Starting with the subtle difference we notice in everyday life, we delve into greater insights about the cultural differences between the U.S. and Japan.

The translation from Japanese to English and vice versa is not a word to word literal translation. The focus instead is on choosing the proper word in each language to make the conversation flow naturally.

We plan to post an article every two weeks.
