At my karate club people call me Sensei, and my friends just call me Richard.


Mr. Robert Whiting ホワイティング・ロバート氏

As part of my research for my global studies master's thesis project, famed journalist and author Robert Whiting kindly agreed to be interviewing by me this month. From the very agreeable location of the Foreign Correspondent's Club of Japan, a few hours was spent talking of sports, martial arts, journalist integrity and up-coming projects, plus a few great stories of past intrigues, which was not just enjoyable, but quite worthwhile for my research.


While all of Mr. Whiting's work is impressive, Tokyo Underworld and You Gotta Have Wa have been favorites on my shelf so far.
