Us Blah + Me Blah is a platform which:
About

1 – shares, through in-depth interviews, the stories of inspirational individuals whose unique activities are their strongest passions.
2 – aspires to be a cultural bridge between Japan and the West.

The name Us Blah + Me Blah points to the structure of the interviews. Us Blah, the conversation, is complemented by notes, explanations and comments in Me Blah.

Us Blah + Me Blah was initially launched as a riso-printed zine in March 2015. Soon after publication, work began on a digital platform, as it felt silly copy-pasting hundreds of URLs on printed matter.

The project came from a desire to share and celebrate the talents of the people around us. Us Blah + Me Blah wants to put the spotlight on our interviewees, contributing to their success in Japan and the West alike.
