Shizuoka Expat Blogger: Ashley Harvey telling about his experiences in “This is MY LIFE”


These days more an more expats write in blogs about their daily life in Japan and naturally Shizuoka.
They share unique life experiences with readers all over the world and offer a true glimpse on life in Japan!
Ashley Harvey hails from New Zealand and is an ardent fan (me too!) of the Crusaders Rugby Team.
He has lived for quite some time in Shizuoka Prefecture working mainly in education.

Do visit his blog : This is MY LIFE!


He is a lucky man being blessed with Ayako, his sweet wife and a growing family.
He has a lot to tell and share about Japan and Shizuoka from festivals to train sushi, a million crows ambush and Mount Fuji views!


His hobbies are sports, especially rugby, cricket and soccer, education (I’m taking a risk here! LOL) and taking the mickey out of French men who remind him about rugby history!
he is a good friend of mine, actually!

Leave comments and I’m sure you will discover a fast new friend!
