Hi, I’m Andy

I’ve lived in Sapporo for 3 years

I speak Japanese

I am a Coffee Roaster


My mother is Japanese and my father is from Hong Kong but I grew up in the UK. I moved to Japan in 2017 and trained to be a chef working in Tokyo and then in a Michelin-starred restaurant in Sapporo. Now, I roast and am the manager of a coffee shop, whilst introducing my love for Japan and Hokkaido in general, through writing and photography. I love all things food and coffee as well as exploring new places to visit. If you need a guide to places to find the best local Hokkaido dishes, spots for your Instagram photos or to see Sapporo as a local, I'll be the perfect fit to help you plan your trip!
