Three complimentary copies of Jane Joritz-Nakagawa’s new book of poetry, Diurnal, arrived in my mailbox the other day. The handsome chapbook is published by Grey Book Press and comes in three colors (I’m keeping the silver one). You can get your own copy directly from the Grey Book website. There are twenty-four numbered poems, each […]


self matsuri

Last year, on September 22nd, I finally got around to visiting Osaka’s Self Matsuri (or ‘Self Festival’ — セルフ祭 in Japanese), a DIY street festival held in the Shinsekai neighborhood that I’ve wanted to attend ever since it was first organized several years ago.

The 2014 Nipponbashi Street Festival (日本橋ストリートフェスタ) will be held in Osaka on March 21st.  I went to the 2013 Street Festival and had a blast, even though I did end up missing the parade itself (which is the main event) and instead spent my time on the backstreets taking portraits.  Most of the more elaborate […]
