Thank you for visiting furikatu! On this page, I’ll introduce myself, the operator behind this website, From Japan with Freedom.

I’m based in Japan and work as an IT Engineer, Writer, and Content Director. Aside from my main job, I also manage this website and share information through note and Twitter.

About This Site

Welcome to From Japan with Freedom! This website is more than just a digital space; it’s a culmination of my decade-long experience as an engineer and six years as a writer.

As someone who made the transition from a traditional engineering role to a freelance engineer-cum-writer, I understand the challenges and questions that come with each phase of this journey. That’s why this website covers a broad spectrum of topics ranging from technical know-how in IT and programming languages, to the nuances of freelancing in Japan, and even includes tips on marketing and SEO.
