Author Biography

Raina Ong moved to Japan after graduating from university and has stayed there for almost a decade. She started as an assistant language teacher (ALT) on the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) programme, but has hung up her teaching realia and is currently a Japan-focused travel writer. Having completed her tour of all 47 prefectures in Japan, her next goal is to visit all the islands and peninsulas in the country. Raina may have a slight obsession with travelling and it is not uncommon to find her miles from home chasing a harebrained travel whim.
