Phoebe Amoroso

Hailing from the UK, Phoebe Amoroso has lived in Japan for over 8 years. Captivated when she first visited as a research student, she has travelled extensively, visiting almost all of the country’s 47 prefectures. She currently works as a reporter and a multimedia journalist, which gives her the opportunity to shout about the wonders of Japan on a regular basis. She has a strong interest in Japanese regional cuisine and rural revitalization strategies. Phoebe enjoys hiking, trail running, and cycling in the Japanese countryside – with the next meal never far from her thoughts. She firmly believes life is too short to eat bad food.
