There’s a discussion (mainly in Japanese) going on about Hokkaido Green and Salary Ninja (two of my stories set in Japan) on Twitter.
Most people enjoyed the story and said I captured the atmosphere of Japan well.
A couple of people said the bear in the story reminded them of Totoro.
Some people are translating some of their favorite phrases of the story into Japanese.
I even got compared to the creators of Doraemon.
A lot of the discussion talks about where to get good ramen. 🙂
