My name is Richard Smart, a journalist based in Tokyo since 2002. During that time, I have been lucky enough to get the chance to work at a couple of media organizations and write about Japan for numerous publications.

Domestically, I’ve been published by places such as The Japan Times, Metropolis, Weekender, J-Select and Wing Span. Internationally, my work has been published with CNN, The Guardian, The Times, People, the Irish Independent and Quartz among others.
