From August on, I am going to try my hand at life as an independent researcher, analyst, and writer here in Tokyo.link

As I see them, Anpontan is writing articles on Japanese politics in view of relatively conservative view point, Liberal Japan in view of liberal, or libertarian, and Observing in view of DPJ. The latter two blogs are different from Onishi and NYT type of "liberalism."
If I have to add on the Conservative side, Global American Discourse would be the one.
