Profile Information

Hello. It is my pleasure to make your acquaintance. My name is Akihiko and I live in Japan.

I am a young man living in Tokyo who’s life has been significantly shaped, some would say cursed, by an overly-timid disposition that does not seem to be very compatible with the world around me.  As you might imagine, life has been quite interesting up to this point and these days I prefer to live my life hidden away from other people. It can sometimes be a lonely existence, but I am happier living this way.

I have written more about these life experiences in my featured short autobiographical story called "My Reclusive Life" in case you are interested in reading about how I came to be living like this, hidden away from the world.


A lot of my spare time is taken up with writing stories of one type or another. For me it is an important means of escapism. I try to focus as much as I can on likeable and often gentle or timid characters, as this is the personatity type I know most about. I also try to base my stories in beautiful, inspirational locations. 

If you felt compelled to read the words here, you may enjoy my work.


The Genre's I enjoy most are:


Science fiction






I keep seeing this open letter to bullies on other people's profiles and it strikes a very powerful chord with me every time I see it.  Bullying has negatively affected my life in more ways that I can ever bring myself to list.

People who have never really experienced bullying, might be able to recognise it in principal, but they probably will not be able to truly understand the gravity of it, the mind-altering intensity of the fear it produces in the victim, the magnitude and level of darkness it can bring to them. Bullying is an evil that should not be tollerated in any civilized society.

Do please copy and paste this to your profile if you are against bullying. I know many will not, and that is okay too. 

Dear Bullies, That boy you punched in the hall today; committed suicide a few minutes ago. That girl you called a slut in class today; she's a virgin. That boy you called lame; has to work every night to support his family. That girl you pushed down the other day; is already being abused at home.   You think you know them! Guess what, you don't!  From, The Victim.
