If you were tasked with redesigning your life, and you had nothing to lose, what would you change? It wasn’t until about a week ago that I started thinking like this. Until then, the whole process of reconsidering what it is we’re doing was based upon the assumption that financial growth was a prerequisite, and […]
Here’s what a 25-week-old unborn Tame child looks like – meet our son! He does actually already have a name but I am told by TwinkleTame that this is still strictly confidential and not to be shared on the interwebs. I can tell you though that it is a boy’s name and works well in […]
I ‘planted’ this avocado stone in a jar of water about a month ago, put it at the back of the shelf above the kitchen sink, and then forgot about it, being preoccupied by a deluge of work. It was only when the shelf was emptied of cups a couple of days ago that I […]

Looking out the door from 4.2km up, your body screams NOOOOOOOOO!!! …but it's too late to back out. The only way down is vertically, at 200km/h.(Actual jump at 3m05s) Google+: View post on Google+ Post imported by Google+Blog. Created By Daniel Treadwell.
Having first worked together last year on the Otsuka Story video (which I’m happy to say is now featured on their new website) Artist Jean-paul Buquet and I teamed up to push the boundaries of stop motion animation, and are delighted to have completed our first in-house production. ‘A Short History of Communication’ – which […]

I love the tracing where I’ve run. Until now, with The Art of Running I’ve typically used a GPS device to leave a virtual trace, a set of coordinates which can then be overlaid on a digital map (such as Google Earth) to bring the run to life online. It was during the short winter […]
Here we are again then – reposting posts from my other website! You can slap me if you’d like to. I love running the Imperial Palace loop. Over the past few months I’ve come to recognise quite a few of the other regular runners – and as you can see from this video, they’ve come […]
I originally posted this over on josephta.me, but I’m so efficient/lazy/busy I’m reposting it as it is right here. With this month marking the second anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake, a lot of media are focusing on stories connected to the horrendous events of that March 11th. Back in 2011 I took The […]
Since it began in 2007, the Tokyo Marathon has continued to grow in popularity. In 2013 over 300,000 people applied to run the full 42.195km race, meaning that there was only a 1 in 10.3 chance of being awarded one of the 35,500 places available. Until last year I had always been lucky with the […]

As a new day breaks over Tokyo, the Snow Penguin is reminded of the dark years he spent living in a snow cave in the crater of Mt. Fuji. Oh how life has changed. Google+: View post on Google+ Post imported by Google+Blog. Created By Daniel Treadwell.
Today’s weather is quite a contrast to the lovely warm temperatures we’d become accustomed to in Guam… The snow was really piling up on our balconies – there was only one person I could call to help clear them – The Snow Penguin. As the snow starts to melt, we’re now being treated to what […]

Not long now until we take to the blue skies over Guam in a little diddy plane, climb to 14,000ft, then jump. Excited! Yesterday we did a little altitude training whilst attached to a boat. Great fun! Google+: View post on Google+ Post imported by Google+Blog. Created By Daniel Treadwell.

It's late here in Guam, and I've just got back in from a run. One thing I've found – there are not as many roads on Guam as in central Tokyo. So, when it comes to the Art of Running, there's not much to work with. Having said that, we went to local market this […]
Had a little drama getting to Guam today… I don't know what it is about me and airports, but I also seem to manage to create some sort of drama. Two years ago, when flying from London to Barcelona, I managed to leave my wallet on the airport shuttle bus. This led to a series […]
The last two years have been crazy busy, so much so that @twinkletame and I haven't had a proper holiday since New Year 2011. When Twinkle's resignation from her previous job coincided with the unexpected cancellation of a big project I was working on, we found ourselves with a bit of time, so decided to […]
For those friends in Kansai, do check out Garigeru on Yomiuri TV on Tuesday night – last month I spent a very memorable day running a special GPS art piece (with a twist) with comedian and global runner Kanpei-san, along with tarento Nishino-san and Anne Nakamura. There's a short trailer on the site which gives […]
People often ask me what I do for a living. It’s hard to tell from my various social media updates or my profile descriptions what it is that I actually do to pay the rent. Perhaps that’s a deliberate ploy of mine. It’s now 2.46am and I’ve just finished a long working weekend. Looking back […]
The Quatro Kids and Team Atsushe Hello world. With life happening at the speed of a futuristic maglev train, I’m finding it tough to keep on track with documenting all that’s going on. I’m still liking AudioBoo though, I like the simplicity of it, and the lack of any need for editing. Here’s one […]
It’s been several months since the two of us went away for a night, and over 18 months since we last spent 2 nights away. We’ve had quite a lot to deal with lately, so thought we deserved a break. We both enjoy the peace, nature and cool temperatures that Hokkaido offers, and soon found […]

There’s been some really lovely sunsets recently, and now I’m working from my home office I’ve been fortunate enough to witness them most days since the autumn equinox. Autumn in Japan is one of my favourite seasons, coming in a close second after spring. The intense humidity of summer is gone, and aside from the […]
