Greetings from the Heartland JAPAN Newsletter Editor!
My name is Niki and I am the Editor for the fortnightly newsletter from Heartland JAPAN. Born and raised in the UK to British and Japanese parents, I came to live in Japan four years ago with the goals of helping to bridge Japan with the rest of the world and creating a better experience for foreigners who visit.
