Tanja moved to Japan in 2015, where she lived in rural Shikoku for two years before relocating to Tokyo in 2017. Originally from London, she has a degree in Japanese and journalism and studied Japanese culture for three years prior to moving to Japan. She has a professional background in tourism and marketing and blogs at her website ryokougirl.com about her travels in Japan. When she has free time she likes to practice improving her photography skills, taking yoga classes and visiting cafés.
