First, I want to thank you for visiting my humble website, and just know that you being here has already made a difference.

I, Runa, single-handedly write each blog post, do all my own research, built and now maintain this website, take all of my own photos (even the beautiful background pic), and all of this - as you might guess - does require a lot of time and love poured into one online resource.

While I do my best to keep you entertained and educated, if YOU wish to help ME out, here are some ideas.

1. Spread the word!

Tell you friends! Tell your family! Tell your dog and cat! Tell your followers on Instagram or wherever else you dwell on the Interwebs! Word of mouth is oftentimes the most powerful tool for information spreading, and this is literally the single most helpful thing you could do for this site.

If you know someone who is interested in Japan or Japanese language or Fatal Frame III, let them know, and maybe one of the blog posts here can help point them in the right direction with whatever question they might be facing. And if they have any specific questions, tell them they're more than welcome to get in touch with me, and I'll do my best to help.

2. Become a patron on Patreon!

The goal of this website, Tabidachi Japan, is not to make money and hide content behind dollar signs. My goal is to teach and to share. That being said, on my Patreon, the only time I want you to donate is if YOU want to donate. There are no tiers or exclusivity, because I want every blog post and Japanese lesson to be wholly accessible to you, my lovely reader and fellow Japan enthusiast! Any bit is tremendously appreciated. And as long as you will read, I will continue to write for you.

3. PayPal donation!

I'm currently working on making a trip back to Japan to get some insiders research done in Shinto shrines (to better benefit my Fatal Frame 3 page. And travel, as we all know, is one expensive beast. So any bit helps (even 1 yen) and is most welcome!

4. Visit often!

It gets lonely in here on the massive world-wide-web. Give the index page a favorite and check back every once and a while. If you're tired of the same-old same-old content, follow me on Instagram to get notified every time Runa posts some new goodies for you to feast your eyes upon.
