"J-List" is a mail-order company located in
Isesaki, Gunma Prefecture, Japan. It is owned and operated by American
Peter Payne and his Japanese wife, Chiharu. Although you can buy many interesting
Japanese products through J-List, the most interesting aspect of the site
is that Peter sends a daily e-mail with tidbits about Japan and about life
as an American ex-pat in Japan. I have found many of these to be
very informative and to resonate with my own experiences.
If you go to the J-List web page you can get on their
e-mail list. After that, almost every day you will learn something
new about Japan.
Note: J-List sells some "adult" products.
If you do not want to be exposed to these, you can avoid that part of the
J-List web site when you enter the site.
