About

Hi (こんにちわ), I’m Fran! 

I like reading, cooking, and video games. I became passionate about Japan and its wonderful culture after playing the Yakuza games franchise (known in Japan as Ryu Ga Gotoku), so much so that I also decided to self-study Japanese. 

Here's just a few key facts about me.

  • Favourite colour: Green
  • Favourite food: Pizza
  • Favourite beverage: Tea
  • Favourite alcoholic drink: Vodka Lemon
  • Favourite music: K-pop & J-rock
  • Favourite bands: Super Junior, EXO, Alexandros
  • Netflix favourites: Rurouni Kenshin, A Korean Odyssey, Memories of the Alhambra

ABOUT LIFE IS A BOX OF MOCHI

Life is a Box of Mochi is a blog about all aspects of Japanese culture that I love. Books, food, places I can't wait to visit when borders re-open... But I also love watching Korean dramas and listening to Kpop, so occasionally you will find posts about that as well.
