My name is Peter Orosz (Orosz Péter in Hungarian — it’s pronounced O-ros” and is the Hungarian word for Russian”, which I am not).

I’m the author of The Wilds of Shikoku, a book about a five hundred kilometer walk across Shikoku, the smallest of Japan’s four main islands, in January and February 2019.

I’m currently working on my second book, A Something Like Peace, which is going to be about a medieval farmhouse in the hills north of Kyoto, Japan’s old capital. You can sign up to the I 💜 Wasting Ink Mailing List to hear about it, and about other projects I’m working on, too.
