My name is Jen and I live in Tokyo with my husband, Jason, and our two girls, E and K. This blog was originally started as a fun way of keeping track of our time here in Tokyo, all through the eyes of our little hamster stuff animals. Over time, the whole parenting thing took over and this blog became more about our kids and our lives here as foreign residents.
Jason and I are from California and we moved to Tokyo in 2006. We were originally here for only a year but somehow that year turned into many years. How long will we stay in Japan? Who knows!
So sit back and enjoy this little space where I talk about anything and nothing at all. I have a tendency to disappear for a while before reappearing and posting up a storm.
By the way, meet the hamsters (technically, capybaras). They’re the reason this blog is called Hamster Central :)
