Blog Report of Hiro8 Japanese Culture Blog
I just wanted to say thank you very much to all the readers who visit my blog!
I kept writing articles for almost 5 years now and noticed that I didn’t write anything about this blog itself. Σ(￣□￣|||)
Now I receive over 200 access to my blog every day, so it’ll be over 6000 access a month.
Actually, the first couple of years, the access was between 15 to 30 per day.
Still, I was glad to know that people visit my blog even if it is a small number of people.
The Reason I started this blog
The first reason I started this blog was I wanted people to visit my website JLINK, plus, I wanted to tell people around the world what is Japan as one of the Japanese.
I made a website 5 years ago to sell Japanese goods but almost no one came, haha. (;^_^A
So, I thought I can write articles about Japan and link them to my website.
But I noticed that I like writing articles more than selling goods on my website (although I still like selling Japanese goods).
Japan was just Japan before I travel around the world.
I was just born in Japan and only that, nothing special.
But I realized the beauty of Japan and what I am today as one of the Japanese after travel.
Through my travel, I was asked if it was OK to take a picture of I by locals in some countries.
I was very surprised as those people knew I was Japanese and told the difference of Asian people just from my appearance.
Even I saw wrong Asian people sometimes, haha.
I have to say thank you for anime and manga as well as Japanese companies such as Honda, Toyoto, Sony, etc.
Anyway, that experience made me think about Japan deeply.
I thought I got back to a usual life of working at a company after came back to Japan but I didn’t after all.
I became self-employed.
More than stable money I can get from a company, living my own life was far more important to me.
And I live freely now although not enough money with me, haha.

About Future of this blog
I also want to interview some Japanese professionals and unique people.
Real voices are great and I also want to know more about their thoughts.
I also plan to make an e-book in the future if possible.
I have so many things to write with me always but just need to have more time.
Over 200 access might be a small number to professional bloggers but great number to me.
Actually, more than the number of access, how I can reach the hearts of each reader is much more important.
Even if it is just one person.
Just one person, who read my blog is important.
I once met with a professional singer called Ohana-san (Youmou to Ohana).
That was my first time to line up for purchasing Albums of a singer.
She once told
“I want to sing a song which reaches to the hearts of each person rather than to so many people”.
And I feel the same.
She passed away but the words and songs she left would keep in my heart for good.
I attached YouTube of her song in this article here.

Sorry, I derailed but I’m gonna keep writing with that in mind.
And I can keep writing thanks to the readers who visit my site, so thank you very much!!
I hope I can deliver something useful, interesting information about Japan.
