Welcome to the Mixi Community for the Essential Japan Guide website!
The Essential Japan Guide is a new website that is growing into a great source
for information about Japan in English.
We also have an English Facebook Fan page, where users can check out
the latest site additions, contribute photos, and talk about Japan,
so please join there as well!
The original goal of EJG was to provide useful travel tips for first-time Japan travelers and people with little or no previous knowledge of Japan, but we're now implementing social networking functionality that will enable us to hopefully go beyond our initial aim and build the site into one of the Web's ultimate Japan info resource and social communities.
In order to accomplish this mission EJG needs your help!
The Essential Japan Guide is looking for Japan insiders like you to contribute what you know and love about Japan in order to build EJG into an active social community of Japan enthusiasts who share their enthusiasm and insider's knowledge of Japan.
On this Mixi community page, we'll be creating topics on various areas of Japan about which you can share your insider's knowledge, including links to pages on the site where you can contribute content directly and even create your own pages!
"Japan" is a broad topic, and so EJG is also looking for volunteer editors who would like to develop their own special area of interest and knowledge on the site.
We're particularly looking for "travel guides" from all areas of Japan outside of the Kanto area to produce useful and insightful travel and living guides to those areas. We're also looking for experts on Japanese anime, manga, music, and other areas of J-Pop culture.
Thanks for joining, and we look forward to your valuable contributions to the Essential Japan Guide!
