Rod Walters byline


I write articles, blog posts, website copy, and I’m currently producing a book on the seagoing clans of Setouchi.

My research for articles often involves interviews with local people, and I’ve interviewed the Governor of Ehime about his innovative cycling and tourism plans for the journal of the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan.

My writing appears on several major websites promoting tourism to Japan, such as Shikoku Tours and Setouchi Finder. I’ve also produced websites for tourism authorities in Shikoku, including Matsuyama and Nishi-Awa.

Besides tourism-related work, I also write about culture, renewable energy and sustainable development, with articles appearing in Eurobiz Japan, the magazine of the European Business Council and EU Chamber of Commerce in Japan. When we built our home on Shikoku, I blogged the process.
