Alexandra Homma

Originally from Bulgaria, Alexandra came to Japan as a teenager and has—as of 2015—officially spent half of her life here, studying, working and enjoying Japan’s culture and outdoors. A true lover of coffee, her hobby is exploring Tokyo's cafes, and she doesn't mind a train ride of two or three hours just for a sip of a carefully dripped, hot, black cup of java. Alexandra is the current managing editor of Savvy Tokyo.
