About Me

Hi, I’m Teni Wada!


I’m a digital creator and consultant based in Tokyo, Japan, my home of 15 years.

I’m the curator of The Wagamama Diaries, a motherhood and lifestyle blog, introducing foreign women in Japan to information about work and family life in Japan, along with the latest domestic beauty products and trends.

In addition, I contribute regularly to Japan’s leading online English language publications. Complete writer portfolio available here.

Personal interests include beauty/cosmetics, sweets, sushi, and a growing fascination with trains, thanks to my daughter’s passion for Japan’s modern technological marvel, the Shinkansen (bullet train).

Find me on my Instagram account @wadateni where I document life and travels in Japan with a toddler or get in touch via the contact form.
