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, which is going to be about a medieval farmhouse in the hills north of Kyoto, Japan’s old capital. You can sign up to my newsletter to hear about it, and about other projects I’m working on, too.
