About

Lonely Planet Pathfinders badge imageI’m Rachel, a ‘gaijin’ (foreigner) living in Japan… But I’m a girl. I’m British and made the move to Japan in January ’16. As a freelance travel and lifestyle writer and part of the Lonely Planet Pathfinders community, these pages are dedicated to sharing my love of Japan with the rest of the world. Girljin in Japan is all about finding my feet in Kyoto, whilst sharing my tips and tricks for travel along the way.
