J-Blog Of The Week #5 Our Man in Abiko

My life has been interesting recently. A lot of things are changing(no Obama reference intended) as of late. Life has been not so bad although not so good either. I do however, feel good about the near future despite big challenges in front of me. It is an exciting and interesting time for me. Speaking of things exciting and interesting, this weeks J-blog of the week is all about excitement and interesting thoughts and experiences. Our Man in Abiko is this week`s featured J-blog.

I have been reading this blog for a while and have left a few comments. I do not remember exactly how I ran across this blog but I am glad that I did. When I visit Our Man in Abiko it is rare that I do not find something interesting to read. I guess this is the mark of a good blogger. I mean, there are some popular English J-blog which I do not like but Our Man almost never lets me down. I do not know how popular his blog is but I think it belongs right up there with the likes of Neil Duckett.com.

Blogs which have the personal touch of someone daily life and all the thoughts roll around in their heads always interest me. Our Man in Abiko seems to have that factor in full effect. Another element to his blog is that it is updated very regularly; which is always a delight for readers of blogs. It is always nice to be able to visit a blog everyday and get something new to read. He also just does not focus on Japan related topics. From time to time he will post something totally apart from Japan. For example, I believe in a place called... and America in 2012: The view from the day before the day before yesterday. If you read his blog regularly enough he will post some thoughts about politics form time to time. He seems to be pretty knowledgeable about politics. For some funny and interesting post about politics in Japan check out the politics for dummies posts.

There is a lot more I could write about Our Man in Abiko but just go over there and check it out for yourself. It is well worth the read. I am sure that you will be hooked in short order.

I discovered OMIA (AKA 007-J ) a few weeks ago and promptly Blogrolled it. Yeah, he's got some good stuff. And it's from Abiko! Abiko!

Wow! Tony actually said something kind of nice for a change. I am sure that he will have plenty of negative things to say because I mentioned his name. He is keen like that.
