Hi! Welcome to

Culture Eats Japanese For Breakfast

Hi my name is Freja. I started the podcast Culture Eats Japanese For Breakfast as a space where I can think out loud about how I live and breathe the culture while living in Japan. It's a perfect medium for me to deep dive into topics that I normally don't have the time to put into long form content.

Since a teenager I moved around quite a bit, there is a constant flow of culture that surrounded me which became a great source of inspiration that I want to share with you. Before moving to Japan, I lived in a few places including China, Yorkshire and Oxfordshire in the UK, New York and Boston.
