On this week’s episode of Transformations with Jayne I am joined by Jo Tindling, podcast manager, as we discuss how our years are going so far. At the end of 2021 Jo and I recorded an episode talking about what we wanted to make happen in 2022, and seeing as how we are at the halfway point of the year I thought it would be a good time to do a bit of a review. 

Join us as we recap where we were at the end of 2021, what our ambitions ...

I love a story of someone finding their way in Japan! Michele Fujii came back to Japan with her husband and found a job, one day realising that although it was a nice job, she really wanted to extend herself and so she started doing just that. If you are wanting to make the most of living in Japan and want to know “how”, then Michele’s story might be just what you need to spark some inspiration for you to take control of your life ...

Note: This episode’s interview was recorded before the earthquake on the 16th of March, and our conversation about disaster preparedness does not talk about this latest big earthquake. I thought that would sound a bit weird for listeners so I spent a few minutes in the beginning of this episode discussing my family’s experience of this latest big earthquake. We were lucky to not experience any major damage or injury, and thank you ...

    We sent our two kids (7 and 10) to visit their grandparents alone during the winter holiday and let’s just say it was amazing, but also eye opening as to just how much my life revolves around them and when they are not home, I struggled not to fall into the trap of filling the space with w.o.r.k.

    You just never know what reaction your actions in the world will cause! My episode with Kate Galloway is an example of what can happen when you put your hand up for things or just try something. I wrote an article about the lack of women in podcasting for my podcast hosting software, Captivate. Kate saw that article and something about it made her take that step forward she had been thinking about, but not doing. I hope you will li...

    One day Nina Cataldo told me that she has been a long time listener of the podcast.

If you have younger kids who are half Japanese, then you will love hearing from Nina, who is the creator of the Hafu Ladies, an online community that supports people l...

    This week on the show I had the pleasure of interviewing author, cross-cultural competence consultant and coach; Karen Hill Anton. She has written an amazing memoir called The View from Breast Pocket Mountain that I highly recommend! She has been living in Japan since the 1970’s, and it was fascinating to hear about how she navigated her way here, motherhood, work and the various cultural differences she encountered. Karen had a lo...

Zoe Kanzawa is making the most of an amazing area in Kochi prefecture, where she and her husband run Niyodo Adventure, a pack rafting and canyoning business that explores the Niyodo river. You have to google Niyodo River now. It’s the most beautiful river I’ve ever seen in Japan.
