Special subjects: Poetry, history, Kit Kats

Ali first visited Japan for a two-week holiday in 2006 and has never looked back since. When asked about her hobbies, Ali's reply is "Japan, Japan, Japan" – although she also has a keen interest in photography, writing, cooking and historical fiction (as long as it’s set in Japan, of course).

During her time living in Japan, Ali spent two years teaching English in Nagoya (the home of our Japan office) and a year in Hamamatsu in Shizuoka Prefecture. These days she’s a certified Kit Kat addict, full-time Japanophile and Senior Travel Consultant for InsideJapan in Bristol – where she spends her free time exploring the city, photographing her surroundings and writing her excellent Japanese culture blog.
