The site nippon-ni.net was created in the autumn of 2003. The reason was that I (Johan Nielsen) was moving to Tokyo, Japan, for a two years postdoctoral research at the University of Tokyo (東京大学).
Nippon-ni.net was intended as the means for me to communicate with family and friends in Sweden about my daily life in Japan. Especially the diary, where I wrote all that happened every day for two years, became what I intended.
Now nippon-ni.net continues in a transformed form. It is no longer a diary but a blog where significant events of my everyday life will be recorded for anyone to read. But most of all for myself, my girlfriend, my family, and my friends.
