Encouraged by an anonymous comment-leaver looking for "any blogs by chicks... especially on Japanese politics or foreign policy", Our Man has been scurrying through the back corridors of the internet to come up with some decent blogs on Japanese politics written by women (what's wrong with men? Plenty, no doubt). Anyway, while on this mission, Our Man (should that be Our Person?) found a post he/she/it somehow missed - The platypus and Japanese politics - which was great, but not written by a woman, as far as Our Person can ascertain. He/She/It also found an entertaining feminist site, where he/she/it nicked the picture from, but they don't appear to write about Japan. There is the excellent Nihon Sun written by Shane Sakata, who despite sounding like a Spaghetti Western actor, is in fact a woman, and more importantly, a good writer about Japan, especially for the non-Japan expert. Check out a recent post here - Nihon on the Net 12/21/08. There are, of course, hundreds of women blogging about Japan, a good one here - Narrative Disorder, but none that are primarily about Japanese politics (in English) that Our Man is aware of, but he would love to be corrected on that score. Got any worthy of adding to Our Man's blog roll?
