My great-grandfather – was an entrepreneur who came to Japan after trying his hand on the South Australian goldfields as a singer.

In Japan, he started the first English language newspaper. As a journalist he wrote books about life in Japan for Europeans and the non-Japanese in those early days.

He noted that it was a bit of a cowboy town, and compared it to the Wild West. His books fully describe life in Japan in the 1800s.
